Creating the Care of Tomorrow
The Research and Innovation Department is Medway NHS Foundation Trust’s dedicated research department. The department assists staff to undertake medical research, devise new equipment, techniques or systems of care that improve patient care and their experience within the hospital. This is linked with the trust strategy of ‘Patient First’ to help improve the care and services provided to the people of Medway and Swale. This new improvement system means focus on fewer, more targeted priorities that can have a big impact quickly. Click here for more information about Patient First.
The Research and Innovation department is comprised of several teams who actively support research and innovation projects in different ways.
About Research & Innovation
Research is the detailed study of a subject with the aim of discovering new information or reaching a new understanding. Scientific research follows a structured process known as the scientific method. The scientific method aims to ensure the accuracy of the findings while removing an individual’s personal point of view.
Medical research is vital in ensuring that medical treatments and healthcare techniques are constantly improving. Medical research has changed the ways we care for and treat people with medical conditions, illnesses and injuries. Indeed, medical research has resulted in the development and improvement of drugs, vaccines, equipment and techniques for many years.
