Meon Medical Centre is a Research Active Practice

The practice team are delighted to announce that Meon Medical Centre is a research active practice working with the National Institute for Health Research Clinical Research Network (NIHR-CRN).

We work in close collaboration with a team of GPs, research nurses and facilitators based in Warwick Medical School. If a patient is eligible to join a research study running in our practice, a GP or other healthcare professional will provide written information. Taking part in a research study is voluntary and can be beneficial to patients who participate in them.

Examples of research projects include:

  • investigating timing of taking blood pressure medication
  • investigating respiratory infections
  • management of heart failure
  • how to increase physical activity
  • ways to help people stop smoking
  • the use of self-monitoring of blood pressure

Our GP Research Lead within the practice is Dr Karen Clarke

MAGNIFY Study - Optimum Patient Care UK

Meon Medical Centre is taking part in the  MAGNIFY( Maximising  Adherence and  Gaining  New  Information  For  Your COPD) study. This has been designed with patient medication adherence support at the forefront. As I’m sure you’re aware, those with a COPD diagnosis may have poor adherence to their medication, resulting in exacerbations, unscheduled care, and preventable poor health.  

The aim of this low-level trial is to evaluate the impact of an enhanced adherence support package on COPD patients. The support package includes add-on technology that attaches to Ultibro Breezehaler and uses a mobile app to help patients improve medication adherence.

Please see the document below for further information.
