Information for staff

This page is currently in development, please come back soon - we will be adding information and resources to help RJAH staff develop their research projects on a regular basis.

The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RJAH), a leading orthopaedic centre of excellence, aims to deliver outstanding patient care enhanced by high quality patient-centred research and Innovation.

The Research support team is here to help all members of staff, whether novice or experienced researcher, wishing to get involved in research.  It provides a full support service covering all stages of a research study from protocol design, applying for funding, study set up, management and data analysis.

If you are thinking about starting a research project, please speak with us as early as you can; our experienced Research Project Managers are able to offer advice and assistance with study design  and can also advise you on what information you will need to submit a research application and obtain Trust approval. If your research study requires funding we are able to identify suitable funding sources and play a pivotal role in writing grants.

If you have been invited to be a Local Principle Investigator of a clinical trial or other research study for another organisation, please contact us as soon as possible.
