The Reproductive Health and Childbirth Specialty is one of 30 Specialties which bring together communities of clinical practice to provide national networks of research expertise.
Our job is to ensure that the reproductive health and childbirth studies that are included in our national portfolio of research receive the right support to ensure they are delivered successfully in the NHS.
The Reproductive Health and Childbirth Specialty oversees research that deals with areas such as:
Each of our 15 Local Clinical Research Networks has at least one nominated local Clinical Specialty Research Lead for Reproductive health. These clinicians lead research groups to promote and support Reproductive health research within the NHS trusts in their area.
At a national level the local leads come together to manage the national Reproductive health clinical research portfolio. This involves regularly reviewing the progress of studies, identifying barriers to recruitment, and coming up with solutions and strategies to help overcome those barriers. Our National Specialty Group of clinical experts offer advice and support to commercial and non-commercial customers looking to conduct research in the NHS.
