Some of our key stakeholders are listed below. The NIHR Clinical Research Network Primary Care specialty group works closely with these organisations in integrating clinical research into NHS clinical service provision, and in driving priority setting that encourages research that will have the greatest impact on patients.
Since its inception in 2006, the NIHR has significantly increased the scale of clinical research in the NHS, particularly through the NIHR Clinical Research Network. The enthusiastic engagement of NHS clinicians is essential for sustaining and building on this success, particularly given the many competing demands on clinician time and resources.
For the first year, the NIHR Clinical Research Network has ran research awards in partnership with the Royal College of General Practitioners. The awards recognise outstanding contributions of NHS general practices and First5® who are active in research.
