Research and evidence

We are committed to improving care for our patients through creating a culture of robust, well-evidenced healthcare commissioning and more impactful research.

Our Clinical Effectiveness & Research Team helps us to evaluate the products and services we commission and to use the most up to date and robust research and evidence to inform our commissioning decisions.

The team offers advice and guidance in undertaking evidence reviews, developing service evaluations and supporting important research so our organisation can commission the best available products and services.

The team works closely with colleagues in the University of Bristol, the University of the West of England and across the wider NHS, enabling us to align the research activity of our local universities with the priorities and challenges of the NHS.

You can find out more about the Research Team’s activity in our quarterly newsletter here. All the editions of our newsletter can be found here.
