Hastings House is a Research Ready Practice, accredited by the Royal College of GPs (RCGP) which means we engage in research studies and trials in collaboration with the West Midlands Primary Care Research Network, based at Warwick Medical School.
This gives our patients the chance to get involved with cutting-edge research that should benefit many patients in the future.
Our research lead GP is Dr Paul de Cates, who works closely with our research nurse Pauline Darbyshire.
Research & Surveillance Centre
This practice is one of over 600 practices in England contributing pseudonymised data for national research and surveillance. These data enable continuous monitoring of infections and diseases in the community and is used in ethically approved research. The Royal College of GPs (RCGP) RSC is the main source of information for Public Health England and helps with the prediction and management of flu outbreaks and pandemics.
