Covered Market NHS exhibition showcases 'ground-breaking' research

NHS exhibition
Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust

A photography exhibition has been set up inside Oxford's Covered Market which showcases some of the pioneering research undertaken by the NHS.

The Body Unlocked: How Research is Changing Lives has life-sized photographs of the people involved in the studies, as well as microscopic images of cells and bacteria.

In 2018/19 there were 1,930 studies involving 39,129 participants at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Director of research and development Professor Keith Channon said he hoped the exhibition would showcase the "ground-breaking research", highlight the "contributions of patients and members of the public" and encourage people to "get involved in research studies that can lead to new and improved treatments in the NHS".

The exhibition will run until 15 April, and then travel around the Thames Valley at museums, libraries and town halls.

If you're just joining us...

There are four new MPs in Buckinghamshire, but no change to party representation.

  • Former Tory Dominic Grieve lost his seat after running as an independent in Beaconsfield. He was booted out of the Conservative Party earlier this year after he backed a bill to try to stop a no-deal Brexit. Beaten by the new Tory candidate Joy Morrissey, who won with 32,477 votes, he still won the support of more than 16,000 voters
  • In Buckingham, the former Speaker of the House of Commons' seat has been won by Conservative Greg Smith, beating Liberal Democrat Stephen Dorrell by 20,411 votes. John Bercow was elected as a Conservative for the first time in 1997, but resigned from the party when he became Speaker in 2009
  • Conservative Steve Baker has retained his seat in Wycombe but with a significantly decreased majority, down from 12.3% to 7.7%
  • New MP Rob Butler has held Aylesbury for the Conservatives with an increased majority after David Lidlington stood down earlier this year.
  • Cheryl Gillan has been re-elected as the Conservative MP for Chesham & Amersham, with a decreased majority
  • In Milton Keynes, Iain Stewart has been re-elected as the Conservative MP for Milton Keynes South and the Conservatives also held Milton Keynes North with Ben Everitt becoming the newly elected MP after Mark Lancaster stood down
