Research Strategy: 2015 to 2020


Our Research Strategy is here

Trust's Vision

The Trust’s vision is “to be the leading hospital providing excellence in specialist heart and lung patient care, based on research, education and innovation”.


R&D's Vision

Complementary to this, our research vision is to be a leading centre for cardiothoracic translational and applied health services research, where patients have access to world class research and all staff will embrace research and innovation to improve patient care.
The strategy builds on our existing strengths as a research active organisation and important collaborations across the UK, whilst recognising the changing research landscape, not least the move to the Heart Lung Research Institute (HLRI).
