The practice team are delighted to announce that Budbrooke Medical Centre is a research active practice working with the National Institute for Health Research Clinical Research Network (NIHR-CRN).

Taking part in a research study is voluntary and can be beneficial to patients who participate in them.
Examples of research projects include:
investigating timing of taking blood pressure medication
investigating respiratory infections
management of heart failure
how to increase physical activity
ways to help people stop smoking
the use of self-monitoring of blood pressure
