Yeovil District Hospital Clinical Research Unit supports and facilitates health research in the area. Our vision is to believe in a better future. Only by carrying out research can we gain new knowledge to continually improve treatment for patients, and understand how to focus NHS resources where they will be most effective. We are committed to offering our patients the opportunity to take part in research ensuring that current treatments and practices are the best that they can be.
