Demand for emergency and unscheduled care is rising. We need to find new ways to deliver to meet patients’ needs and contain costs.

TRUST is a network bringing together researchers, clinicians and service providers to develop and improve unscheduled, emergency and trauma care. We work together to:

• develop research proposals through Research Development Groups

• carry out high quality research

• disseminate our findings

• build capacity for research

• involve service users in shaping research

TRUST is a Registered Research Group funded by the Welsh National Institute for Social Care and Health Research (NISCHR). TRUST works closely with other research organisations in Wales and England.
