We are one of 15 Clinical Research Networks (CRNs) in England, delivering research to make patients, and the NHS, better. We are passionate about the contribution that clinical research can make to patient care, and work collaboratively with our partners to translate that passion into the effective delivery of clinical research studies in the North Thames area.
Our passion is driven by patients who receive the benefits of clinical research. Watch the videos below to find out what it was like for one of our patients to take part in a clinical trial, and see more patient experiences on our patient and public involvement page.
