Older People, Rehabilitation & Stroke


Around 10 million people in the UK are aged 65 years old or over; people are living longer thanks to improvements to general health, diet awareness and preventative health care. Investing in and supporting research into this area increases the knowledge and skills required to provide compassionate, safe, timely and effective care to patients in a crucial stage of their lives.


The MOPRS department run a variety of research studies here in Portsmouth that many patients are often keen to be involved in. These studies cover condition areas such as:

  • Acute Stroke

  • Rehabilitation

  • Parkinsons Disease

  • Motor Neurone Disease

  • Medication studies

  • Compassionate care

With many more studies currently in set up - be sure to check this page again in the future for updates.
