Find out more about the management of the Scottish Clinical Research Networks.
Management of the Scottish Clinical Research Networks is coordinated by the Chief Scientist Office (CSO) which has encouraged NHS Scotland and the Scottish clinical academic research community to work to expand clinical research activity in a collaborative way.
There are seven Networks in Scotland (including the existing Networks in cancer):
The SPCRN's key aim is to facilitate national research activity in primary care, undertaking projects with other Scottish Networks and colleagues in England.
Research outwith the above topics or the area of Primary Care is supported through general NRS (NHS Research Scotland) Infrastructure funding provided to Scottish NHS Boards. More information can be obtained from the CSO website.
