Commercial research

UH Bristol hosts a large number of commercial studies across all our clinical divisions. Commercial research studies from the pharmaceutical and medical device industries play an important part in keeping the NHS, and UH Bristol, at the forefront of modern treatment and can give our patients access to treatments they would not usually have access to, as well as supporting the health and wealth of the nation.

The Research & Innovation Department is committed to supporting commercial research at UH Bristol, where it is of a high standard and has the potential to benefit our patients and the Trust as a whole. We have a dedicated Commercial Research Team within R&I who strive to make UH Bristol an environment where industry led research can thrive through rapid set-up and delivering to time and target.

Commercial research can be defined as research studies that are sponsored or fully funded by industry and are run within the NHS under a contract between the company and the NHS organisation. These tend to be clinical trials of new drugs or medical devices, but can also involve qualitative or non-interventional research.
