CRN Yorkshire & Humber Funding Model

NIHR CRN Yorkshire and Humber Funding Model

The model by which funding is distributed across the Clinical Research Network Yorkshire and Humber is agreed annually by the CRNYH Partnership Group. The annual plan and final allocations were agreed at the April 2019 meeting.

Funding is provided through a combination of:

  • allocations to each partner Trust to utilise in support of their research priorities
  • an allocation that funds a flexible clinical team working across the Network and managed centrally

The funding principles for 2019/20 to support CRN activity and strategy are:

  • A top-sliced element is retained to support central hosting, study support service and management costs.
  • A research delivery allocation is made to network partner trusts (72% of total annual amount) at the start of the year. This funds the infrastructure to support recruitment of participants into the non-commercial research portfolio. 
  • Funding is based on historically agreed partner trust recruitment targets and reflects a local weighting for the complexity of the trials.  This weighting is 1:3.5:11 for large sample size, observational and interventional studies respectively. 
  • Partner trusts receive an annual funding allocation that supports the research governance activity in their R&D departments (5% of the total budget).  
  • For 2019/20, the funding allocations to our 22 partner trusts was maintained at 2018/19 levels to provide stability.
  • £436k funds Clinical Leadership across the region supporting 32 clinical specialties.  
  • A contingency of £517k (2% of the total budget) has been ring-fenced to support CRNYH strategic objectives including local population health needs.
  • A funding allocation of £978,319 (3.7% of the total budget) funds a flexible team of staff working across the Network supporting acute, primary care and other sector research activity.  
  • Primary care, public health and social care activity is supported additionally with £689.4k to fund infrastructure and service support primarily through a GP practice cluster model.
