Research with care

Research with care

CPFT is a top research active NHS trust and hosts the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration East of England. We work with global, national and local partners to conduct high quality, groundbreaking research into mental and physical health, and support innovation to improve care services. 

Every year we run studies with thousands of participants to learn more about conditions and find new therapies and treatments that work for different people. Our research translates the latest scientific discoveries and evidence into NHS care at CPFT.
