Research & Development

Bay Medical Group (BMG) is proud to be a research active organisation - we are part of a network of local practices participating in high quality research activities funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network - North West Coast (CRN)

As a practice we believe research is a vitally important aspect of the high standard of care we provide to our patients. The NHS Constitution (2015) states research is a core function of the NHS- it is a major driver of innovation and central to NHS practice for maintaining and developing high standards of patient care.

The purpose of conducting medical research is to obtain robust scientific evidence to establish whether or not new treatments have the effects that we think they might.

Until this research has been conducted, we do not know whether one particular treatment will be more or less effective than another
