LOROS aims to improve care for patients and their families by undertaking research.
These pages may feature medical and research terminology and subjects of a sensitive nature. We hope however, that anyone who is interested in research at LOROS will find them useful and we'd welcome your feedback
We work collaboratively with patients and carers and with research teams from many universities and NHS organisations, locally and nationally.
We welcome being part of new projects that will improve the care of patients and families and the skills of staff that support them.

On 28th March 2019 Dr Wendy Ann Webbgave a truly outstanding annual LOROS lecture, 'Life's Hard and Then You Die: Exploring the end of life concerns within the homeless population'. The event was live streamed and you can catch it again here.
Our research project, 'Thinking Ahead: Exploring and understanding experiences and decisions in end of life care planning with patients and families from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds', has started. It's been kindly funded by the National Institute of Health Research. More here.
LOROS' Marjolein Cleaver shared the findings of our EVOLVE project at the Allied Professionals Forum in Glasgow recently. This was an 18-month project, funded by Hospice UK, to support patients with Motor Neurone Disease to engage in meaningful activity in their own homes. Find out more here.
