Why engage in research activity?
The National Institute for Health Research provides support for clinical-scientists, and specialist research nurses. Some of this support is in the form of funding for research studies that can benefit NHS patients, and improve the health service. Use the links panel to find out more about funding.
Other support comes from us, here at the Clinical Research Network.
Five good reasons to carry out clinical research in your organisation:
- Patient priority
- Patient benefit
- Income generation through innovation
- Meeting the government policy agenda
- Developing potential of the healthcare workforce
Research is a patient priority yet many Trusts are unaware of their performance against this aspect of the NHS Constitution.
