What is the League Table?
Each year, the NIHR Clinical Research Network publishes the NIHR Research Activity League Table. It provides a picture of research activity in all NHS Trusts, Foundation Trusts and GP practices in England. The table data includes how much clinical research is happening, where, in what types of NHS provider, and involving how many patients.
Find out where your local NHS trust or clinical commissioning group (CCG) region features on this year's NIHR Research Activity League Table.
This year (2018/19) the league table reveals that 50 per cent of NHS trusts across England increased their research activity during 2018/19.
61 per cent of NHS CCG* regions across England have also seen an increase in research activity.
This has given more than 870,250 participants access to better treatments and care during 2018/19, the highest number since records began. Read all of the NIHR CRN's annual statistics for 2018/19.
*For the purposes of the league table display, data relating to research in GP practices has been aggregated by NHS CCG, i.e. the data displayed for a CCG reflects the total research activity for GP practices within the geographical area covered by that CCG.
