What is the League Table?
Each year, the NIHR Research Activity League Table is published by the NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN). It details the amount of NIHR CRN research activity taking place in all NHS trusts across England. The table provides a picture of how much clinical research is happening, where, in what types of trusts, 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 Clinical Commissioning Group* (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.
*Research activity which has taken place at sites within the geographical area of a Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) have been grouped within that CCG region.
