Research and Development

The Western Trust Research and Development Department is part of the Medical Directorate.  We are based in the Clinical Translational Research & Innovation Centre (C-TRIC), which is located on the Altnagelvin Hospital site. 

The role of the department is to support and facilitate researchers to undertake high quality research and to provide research governance to ensure the interests of participants, researchers and the Trust are protected through adherence to the local and national regularity framework for Research & Development activity. 

We work closely with researchers from the University of Ulster and Queen’s University as well as developing collaborative working with the Northern Ireland Clinical Research Network and the Northern Ireland Cancer Trials Centre

The Trust’s Nursing and Midwifery staff also specifically deliver an active programme of research and development.  Visit the Nursing Research and Development page for more information.
