Department for Health

About Bath Research & Development

We are a partnership between three CCGs, the Department for Health within the University of Bath (where the Consortium is located) and two local social enterprises, Sirona and Seqol. The groups involved are: Bath and North East Somerset CCG, Swindon CCG and a portion of the Wiltshire CCG.

We offer research support and help to facilitate the conduct of trials and other well-designed studies within primary and community care; with our focus being to promote health research.

We provide research governance services; and drop in support sessions for researchers with queries regarding regulatory approval.

We offer advice to researchers on involving the public in health research, which is a requirement for NIHR funding applications; and we also support members of the public who would like to participate in research.
