Children's Research 

Research in Children is important for many reasons, not least because Children are not little adults!  Studies that we are taking part in at Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust are helping to discover:


- New & improved treatments

- Treatments for illnesses that only occur in children

- Long term effects of treatments on growth & development


Research in children also :


- Improves their outcomes

- Enhances quality of life

- Helps children become healthier adults

Our paediatric research portfolio has been growing since we opened our first general paediatric research study in 2015 offering children & their families the opportunity to take part in a variety of studies.


‘Research with infants, children & young people is essential to improve our understanding of childhood diseases & provide healthcare based on the best possible evidence.’ (RCPCH, 2016)
