What is maternity research?

Leicester's Research Women's Health

At Leicester’s Hospitals, we carry out research to gather evidence on what works in maternity services so that we can deliver the best possible care for women, children and their families – now and in the future.

Clinical research is, and always has been, at the very heart of the NHS. Only by carrying out research into "what works" can we continually improve drugs, treatments and care pathways for patients, and understand how to focus NHS resources where they will be most effective.

Find out more about clinical trials in the 'Understanding clinical trials' leaflet produced by NHS National Institute for Health Research.
