Research and Innovation Directorate

Welcome to our Research and Innovation Directorate. We provide clinical, managerial and administrative support to those who are undertaking clinical research in the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch hospitals.

Our Vision

RBCH to be a centre of excellence in healthcare research and to lead on collaborative working across Dorset supporting research and innovation.

Our Purpose

To foster a thriving research and innovation culture throughout the Trust ensuring high quality research and respect for our research participants and our researchers.

Our Values

RBCH strives to provide the excellent care we would expect for our own families. We seek to support and deliver our research strategy by creating an ethos throughout the Directorate underpinned by our core Trust values.

We wish to apply our expertise through new opportunities in commercial and non-commercial trials, developing vital partnerships with new and existing collaborators.

Here are two videos about our clinical research:
