Celebrating Our Staff

The Chesterfield Royal Research Repository collates & stores all the fantastic work produced by staff members whilst working at our Trust. It showcases research papers, conference posters, theses & books.

It also captures data on current and past clinical research trials at Chesterfield Royal. These can also be searched within the research repository allowing staff, students and patients access to live study progress and past results. Communicating these results is vital to ensure the findings can help improve care for future patients.

The Chesterfield Royal Research Repository is a great space to ‘celebrate our staff’.
