Good quality research provides the evidence that can lead to changes in practice, improvements in quality and can potentially translate into better clinical and service outcomes. Participating in good quality research is important to SWASFT.

SWASFT has an active and successful Research, Audit and Improvement Department led by Dr. Sarah Black based in Trust Headquarters in Exeter. A team of Research Paramedics and research and audit personnel are key to SWASFT's success in delivering and implementing research projects throughout the Trust.
