Yorkshire Health Study partnership

I’m delighted to say that the Trust has signed up to the Yorkshire Health Study – an on-going research study following the lives of thousands of people in Yorkshire.​ 

The aim of the study is to inform NHS and local authority decision making in Yorkshire, to improve the overall health and wellbeing in the region, and to engage Yorkshire people in health research that is about them, and for them.  This links with our own Public Health Strategy and is funded through CLAHRC (NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care) Yorkshire and Humber.

I would encourage everyone to get involved in this important research by completing a short questionnaire about your own health and wellbeing, which will help inform the work being carried out.  There are many benefits to us being involved as employees of LTHT and one of the largest employers in the county.

For more information, take a look at the Yorkshire Health Study website or watch a video which gives more detail.
