About The GARnet

The GARNet - East Midlands Gastroenterology Audit and Research Network - is a trainee-led collaborative group of Gastroenterology speciality registrars with honorary consultant members and associate members (other doctors, medical students and other professionals) in the East Midlands region of the United Kingdom.


We were established in November 2016.

Our mission

to plan and deliver high quality, trainee-led, collaborative, multi-centre audit and research in gastroenterology and hepatology for the benefit of current and future patients

Our aims

  1. Establish an open network of interested gastroenterology registrars, doctors, medical students and other professionals across the East Midlands region (Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland).

  2. Facilitate trainees to propose, design and refine, and deliver multi-centre audit and research projects with a high potential for making an impact.

  3. Put a collaborative spirit at the core of the GARNet, ensuring that the contributions of the membership and associates are recognised through a transparent process.

  4. Provide continuity so that members can continue their involvement in audit and research projects as they move around the region.

  5. Provide training and direct members to resources that extend their involvement, experience and competence in audit, research and quality improvement.

  6. Undertake or facilitate activities that promote and help to deliver the wider regional and national research agenda, including but not limited to collaboration with other trainee-led collaboratives and with NIHR Clinical Research Networks.
