AIREDALE Hospital staff are taking to the road to spread the word about clinical research.

Two roadshows are being held in Keighley, as part of celebrations of International Clinical Trials Day.

Visitors will have the chance to learn more about trials and take part in the Yorkshire Health Study, a questionnaire.

Staffing the roadshows will be Dr Carole Paley, head of research and innovation at Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, and team colleagues.

"Research is vital for improving the care we give to patients and ensuring that treatments are based on the most up-to-date evidence," said Dr Paley.

"It also helps new treatments to be developed to give us the best outcomes for patients.

"We want to show people how important research is and how it can transform their care."

The roadshows are at the Keighley Leisure Centre cafe on Wednesday, May 23, and at the Airedale Shopping Centre on Friday, May 25, both from 10am to 1pm.

There is also one at Morrison's in Skipton on Tuesday, May 22, from 10am to 2pm.
