Aims & Objectives
The aim of Reach West is to make it easier to carry out health research in the west of the UK. It is often difficult for researchers to find suitable people for research studies, even for common conditions and many people in the west would participate in research if they knew a suitable study was available. Reach West matches interested people to high quality research projects that are likely to be relevant to them. This greatly reduces the time it takes to carry out research studies and to bring new treatments into routine use. Reach West will play a central role in research in the west, helping to develop new treatments and seeking to improve health outcomes.
