About us
The Research Office, led by Dr Tracy Shalom, comprises three teams, briefly detailed below:
Research Development- supporting the development of research proposals, building academic and healthcare professional research teams and identifying the best funding route for potential research projects.

Research Management- facilitating set-up, management and monitoring of research studies across Primary & Community Care in Norfolk & Suffolk. 

Research Delivery- assisting national portfolio studies within primary care to implement research locally through the Clinical Research Network (CRN): Eastern primary care team. The Research Delivery Team is now hosted by Norfolk Community Health and Care Trust.

The Research Office also hosts the Public and Patient Involvement in Research (PPIRes) project which liaises with researchers to promote and facilitate lay involvement in research studies and recruits and supports a volunteer panel of 70 members.
