We are passionate about the contribution that clinical research can make to patient care and work collaboratively with other NHS providers to translate that passion into the effective delivery of studies in the area.

We make sure that clinical research occupies the place it deserves to in the day-to-day work of the NHS across the North East and North Cumbria area. This includes Trusts, primary care organisations and any other qualified providers of NHS services. 

"Making the North East and North Cumbria the best place to take part in research, for researchers and for patients."

Our local training programme

One of our key aims is to support the development of the local clinical research workforce resulting in the delivery of high quality NIHR Clinical Research Network Portfolio studies. Course information including course bookings can be found here.
