As the NIHR Clinical Research Network North East and North Cumbria, we provide the infrastructure that allows high-quality clinical research to take place in the NHS in our area, so that patients can benefit from new and better treatments. We help to increase the opportunities for patients to take part in clinical research and ensure that studies are carried out efficiently. We are hosted by Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
