There are six Topic Specific and Primary Care Research Networks which cover some or all of the London (South) CLRN area:
South West London Cancer Research Network
The South West London Cancer Network exists in order to improve the services provided for Patients and carers. We do this by working together to plan and deliver high quality clinically effective cancer services. It is important that these services are shaped by the needs and views of our patients.
Lead: Dr Stephen Johnston
Manager: Kim Tye
South East London Cancer Research Network
The fundamental aim of the South East London Cancer Network is to ensure that all patients served by the Network have access to a uniformly high quality of care in the community or hospital, wherever they may live. The Network aims to provide this care as close to the patient’s home as is compatible with high quality, safe and cost effective treatment, and to provide care in a fully collaborative multi-disciplinary, multi-professional and multi-agency setting in which all professional and administrative boundaries are invisible to the patient.
Lead: Dr Steve Schey
Manager: Kerrie Montoute
South England Stroke Research Network
The purpose of the NIHR Stroke Research Network (NIHR SRN) is to provide the health service infrastructure to facilitate the conduct of clinical trials and other well designed studies in stroke across the full spectrum of disease treatment and prevention.
Lead: Professor Hugh Markus
Manager: Gaye Hadfield
South London Mental Health Research Hub
We support research across South London & the South East building on knowledge to improve patient care and mental health services.
Lead: Professor Tom Craig

London South East, North Central and East Medicines for Children Research Network
The Medicines for Children Research Network (MCRN) has the central objective of facilitating the development of medicines that are both safe and effective in the treatment of children. It will have a major focus on clinical trials but will also include other study designs relevant to the overall objective.
Lead: Dr William Van't Hoff
Manager: Paula Hurley
Greater London Primary Care Research Network
The NIHR Primary Care Research Network for Greater London (PCRN-GL) is part of a national re-organisation of research by the Department of Health and is an exciting new initiative in primary care in London. Co-ordinated at a national level by the NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN), it is one of eight local primary care research networks covering the whole of England.
