Providing high quality research can greatly improve outcomes for patients and the researchers at Basildon Hospital contribute to over 60 studies that help us to understand diseases better and develop new treatments for the benefit of our patients and the wider NHS. 

The team set up a stall on 30 October outside of the hospital restaurant to showcase the great research the hospital supports and invited staff and patients alike to come along and find out how research can improve the current and future health and care of our population.

Perry Curley, who is taking part in a clinical research trial, FLAIR, visited the stand. FLAIR (Front-Line therapy in CLL) trials new therapies in patients with previously untreated chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL).

Perry said:“My family and I have seen a significant improvement in my health, all thanks to the work of our hospital and other healthcare researchers. It is essential that these trials and others continue so we can make improvements to treatments and make them available to all who need them.”

Ashley Solieri, associate director of research and development at Basildon Hospital added:“It was excellent to see Perry doing so well and to see other patients and our staff showing such an interest in our research activity. Without our patients agreeing to take part, we would not be able to support the many studies that we do.  Our team is passionate about  improving outcomes for our patients and contributing to evidence based treatments and healthcare delivery of the future”.
