Recording coronavirus-related delays on R-Peak



R-Peak new functionality - recording delays

R-Peak now has a new functionality which allows Trust R&D/R&I teams to record/capture research delays caused to NIHR Portfolio studies by COVID-19.

To use this new functionality:

  • please see the properties tab in R-Peak where three fields have been made available for you to record any research delays to Portfolio studies because of COVID 19
  • we have also added a start and end date field just below the impact field so we can record how long the delay lasts 

Based on your activity updates to this Properties tab we (CRN GM) can then report back to the NIHR CRN Coordinating Centre on a weekly basis.

Thank you for your cooperation and support. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us at

Please note: You cannot access R-Peak over the public internet, only within the NHS network.

To access R-Peak from home, you will need a VPN (Virtual Private Connection) to be set-up by your Trust's IT team. This will allow you to connect remotely to your Trust’ work desktop and use R-Peak from there.
