What questions would you like to see answered by research?

10th February 2020

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) need your help to identify and update the priorities in gastrointestinal care that are ready for research, to complement wider priority setting activities in this area.

The NIHR are seeking research suggestions as they commission and fund projects whilst considering the usefulness of new and existing tests, treatments and ways of doing things.

"To make good decisions about what research to fund we need a complete and balanced picture about which questions most urgently need answering. We ask patients, carers, clinicians, health care workers, service managers and researchers. Whoever you are, we need your voice"
