About Reach West

What is Reach West?

Reach West is a list of people living in the west of the UK who are interested in taking part in health research. By signing up, these people have agreed to allow access to their medical details in order to identify relevant research projects for them to participate in. This process makes conducting research easier, which will lead to improvements in health services in the local area.

When you join Reach West you may be invited to participate in research studies, but it would always be your decision whether you participate or not.  Signing up to Reach West is a quick and easy process, which could make a real difference to health research and services in your area.

Reach West is run by the NIHR’s Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care in the West, based at the University Hospitals Bristol NHS Trust.
