Research & Development


Clinical research and development at Morecambe Bay Hospitals


University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT) is committed to providing opportunities for clinical research and development.

Developing a research active culture brings a host of benefits for patients, clinicians and the NHS. It drives innovation, gives rise to better and more cost effective treatments, and creates opportunities for staff development. Growing evidence also suggests that NHS organisations that are research-active appear to do better in overall performance.

“Our partners in Morecambe Bay are truly placing research at the core of NHS business. The Trust’s recruitment of patients indicates a strong commitment to research and innovation as well as the drive to improve clinical outcomes for patients.”
(National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network 2012)
