How the Clinical Research Network helps deliver research

The NIHR Clinical Research Network supports researchers and the life-sciences industry in developing, setting up and delivering high quality research to time and target in the NHS in England.

For any study that is eligible or applying for Network support, whether commercially or non-commercially sponsored, we offer a range of services across the research pathway that will help study feasibility, set up and delivery to time and target. Regardless of the location, study type, study size or therapy area of the research, we will provide consistent and high quality support.

Whether it is help with regulatory approvals, assistance with site identification, or guidance with the costings for a study, our dedicated advisors are here to help. This infrastructure provides unparalleled access to, and understanding of, the NHS research environment.
