Local Clinical Research Networks

The Clinical Research Network is made up of 15 Local Clinical Research Networks that cover the length and breadth of England. These local networks coordinate and support the delivery of research in the NHS and across the wider health and social care environment, in England.

The Local Clinical Research Networks are overseen by the National Coordinating Centre which has offices in Leeds, London, Liverpool, Newcastle and Preston.

We support clinical research infrastructure throughout England, which is working towards increased access for patients to new and better treatments in the NHS.
