Bristol Surgical Trials Centre (BSTC)

The Bristol Surgical Trials Centre is directed by Professor Jane Blazeby, Professor of Surgery and Honorary Consultant Surgeon. It is based in the University of Bristol, and is closely linked with the two UKCRN registered clinical trials units in Bristol and the MRC ConDuCT Hub (Collaboration and Innovation in Difficult and Complex Trials).

The surgical trials centre will bring together a critical mass of experienced methodologists and academic surgeons to develop and deliver new trials, increasing future capacity for high quality surgical research.

The specific aims of the centre are:

  • design, develop and deliver trials and prospective studies in surgery in collaboration with regional and national consultant surgeons in all surgical specialties;
  • provide a training programme comprising short course and workshops in surgical trial methodology for trainees and consultants, and to increase the capacity for trials through career development of surgeons;
  • provide specialist expertise for difficult or complex trials due to recruitment issues, outcome assessment (including patient reported outcome measures) and other methodological issues relevant to surgical trials.
