Research helps to improve public health and patient care – it’s a way we improve treatments in the NHS and make a real difference to people’s lives.


The Research and Innovation department at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust is recognised nationally and internationally as a leading centre for clinical research, with more than 600 projects recruiting here each year.  We have a number of world-leading clinicians among our researchers, including Professors Christopher Griffiths (dermatology), Ariane Herrick (rheumatology), Philip Kalra (renal), Craig Smith, Adrian Parry-Jones (stroke), John McLaughlin and Simon Lal (gastroenterology).


Our research links closely with clinical care and teaching to ensure patients and their wellbeing are at the heart of everything we do. It covers all types of studies ranging from early stage developments of new treatments to large scale population-wide studies. It means patients have access to some of the most cutting edge treatments.


Salford Royal is a partner in Health Innovation Manchester, which underpins the development of Greater Manchester as a world leader in health research.
