The UKCRN helps to provide the infrastructure that allows high-quality clinical research to take place in the NHS, so that patients can benefit from new and better treatments, and we can learn how to improve NHS healthcare for the future.

On this site you can learn more about the Clinical Research Network, including:

  • how we are helping researchers to set up clinical studies quickly and effectively;
  • how we are supporting the life-sciences industry to deliver their research programmes;
  •  how we are providing health professionals with research training;
  • and how we work with patients to ensure their needs are at the very centre of all research activity.
