We support the delivery of health research across 30 research specialties within 14 local NHS Trusts and 11 Clinical Commissioning Groups.
Clinical Research Network (CRN) Greater Manchester provides practical support to allow high-quality clinical research to take place in the NHS in Greater Manchester. This is so we can gather evidence that leads to new and better treatments for patients.
We are hosted by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust. Our host is responsible for ensuring the effective delivery of research throughout our region’s Trusts, primary care organisations and other qualified NHS providers.
We’re committed to delivering research which improves our patients’ health and NHS services.
We have a strong track record of collaboration with life sciences companies and are passionate about the contribution that clinical research can make to patient care.
For any study that is eligible or applying for Network support, whether commercially or non-commercially sponsored, we offer a range of services across the research pathway.
These services help with study feasibility, set-up and delivery to time and target. Regardless of the location, study type, study size or therapy area of the research, we will provide consistent and high quality support.
Whether it is help with regulatory approvals, assistance with site identification, or guidance with the costings for a study, our dedicated advisors are here to help. This infrastructure provides unparalleled access to, and understanding of, the NHS research environment. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
CRN Greater Manchester recruited 83,478 participants across 1,105 research studies in 2018/19 - a record total for the network.
