We believe that our ability to deliver our vision lies with collaboration and we continue to work closely with a number of funders and partners to achieve this as described below.
The NIHR Clinical Research Network: South London is part of the larger Clinical Research Network (CRN) which is the clinical research delivery arm of the NHS.
The NIHR CRN operates nationally across England through a national coordinating centre and 15 local branches delivering research in the NHS across all disease areas.
The NIHR Clinical Research Network: South London helps to increase the opportunities for patients to take part in clinical research, ensures that studies are carried out efficiently, and supports the Government’s Strategy for UK Life Sciences by improving the environment for commercial contract clinical research in the NHS in the South London area.
We are passionate about the contribution that clinical research can make to patient care, and work collaboratively with other NHS providers to translate that passion into the effective delivery of studies in the area.
We make sure that clinical research occupies the place it deserves to in the day-to-day work of the NHS across the South London area. This includes Trusts, primary care organisations and any other qualified providers of NHS services.
