What people say about us

Dame Sally Dame Sally Davis, Chief Medical Officer for England: 

“Research is central to the NHS. We need the evidence from research to deliver better care. Much of the care that we deliver at the moment is based on uncertainties or experience, but not on evidence. We can only correct that through research”



Emily McDougal from YH CRN has described what makes Mid Yorks Research team stand out in the region:

“The team continue to be proactive and innovative in their approach to research, supporting new ways of working and new researchers with a seemingly endless supply of enthusiasm, team work and expertise. What is special about the team at Mid-Yorkshire is their commitment to building partnerships, with patients, with other Trusts and with valued providers and Sponsors alike."
