Compass Study


There is some evidence that having surgery may adversely affect a person’s on memory.  To better understand this, a Research Team have developed this study to assess memory post-operatively. Led by Dr Lisa Gibbons and working with Research Fellows Dr Emma Parker and Dr Rachael Meek, they are collaborating with anaesthetists based in both Plymouth and Exeter Hospitals.

This study tests the memory of two groups of people, those having surgery (Surgery Group) and those not having surgery (Comparison Group). We will ask people to go onto an easy to use website to do memory tests.

We are taking part in the “Comparison Group” here at Barton Surgery. We want to know if this new study design is practical, user friendly and a good way to test memory.

If you have been invited to take part or wish to do so please email us at: or telephone the Practice on 01626 888877.
