Welcome to the Hepatology Research Department Page


The Hepatology research team is based at the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth. We deliver research across the Hepatology department. Our aim is to demonstrate how engagement in clinical research leads to improvement in health outcomes and management of patients care and quality of life.

We are a growing team with 3 research active consultants, 2 specialist research nurses and a clinical trials assistant. As a speciality, we work very closely with all the Medical team, Specialist nurses, ward and other health professionals to promote, recruit and deliver the Research Studies.
