CPFT is one of the UK's top research active NHS Trusts, running high-quality, groundbreaking research into physical and mental health conditions and supporting innovation. We work to translate the latest discoveries into NHS services to improve care for our patients and ensure they benefit from new treatments.
We believe in the value of scientific research to help us understand and treat a range of conditions affecting people of all ages, which is why we run a large, diverse portfolio with hundreds of studies. Research underpins our services at CPFT by building the evidence base for care practice.
We work with thousands of volunteers every year to find more effective and efficient treatments, for better health outcomes and recovery pathways. Research makes a difference for people now and in the future.
CPFT is continuing a long tradition of research with care, developing the historic partnership between Fulbourn Hospital and the University of Cambridge Department of Psychiatry. We work with new regional, national and international partners every year. Our research is conducted to the highest standards and informed by the views and priorities of our patients, carers and clinical colleagues, many of whom are world experts in their field. Participation in research at CPFT is a rewarding and positive experience, offered as part of the excellent clinical care provided by the Trust.
