Health Matters – Tuesday 14 May

The topic this month is “East Cheshire NHS Trust – Researching Today for a Better Tomorrow”

Members of our Clinical Research Team are delivering the next Health Matters public talk on Tuesday, 14 May, 7.00-8.00pm, in the new Lecture Theatre at Macclesfield District General Hospital. 

The Trust is actively involved in research in a number of key areas including cancer, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, medicines for children, cardiology, haematology, rheumatology, and stroke.

The purpose of this Health Matters talk is to demystify clinical trials, explain how they work, and look at some of the exciting research currently under way. The session will be introduced by Dr Susan Knight, and the talk will be given by our research nurses including Clare Vandor, Barbara Townley, Beverley Jones, and Joanne Shippey.
