Local Clinical Research Network Hosts Announced (NIHR / Department of Health)

Summary

Last year over 630,000 patients took part in clinical research studies supported by the NIHR Clinical Research Network.

15 NHS and foundation trusts have been asked to host local NIHR networks from April 2014. These NIHR network hosts will help recruit more NHS patients into clinical trials. The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR)‘s Local Clinical Research Network plans to distribute £280 million in NIHR funding per year to hospitals and surgeries across England to pay for clinical research costs.

“The network will help to increase the opportunities for patients to take part in clinical research, and will be responsible for making sure that studies are carried out efficiently. It also supports the government’s strategy for UK Life Sciences research in the NHS… Clinical research provides evidence about ‘what works’, and on how the NHS can provide better treatments for NHS patients… The promotion, conduct and use of clinical research is included in the NHS Constitution“.
