CRN South London

We help to increase the opportunities for people to take part in health and social care research, which will lead to better care, treatments and health preventative measures now and in the future. 

About us

We are hosted by Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, although we work with every NHS trust in south London as well as every clinical commissioning group in the region.

Our aim is that clinical research occupies the place it deserves to in the day-to-day work of the NHS. This includes NHS trusts, Integrated Care Boards and other qualified providers of NHS services, social care and where ever there are healthcare needs. The principles of the NIHR along with the core values of CRN South London's partner organisations run through everything we do.

We are passionate about the contribution that clinical research can make to patient care and disease prevention. We work collaboratively with NHS providers, social care and public health to translate that passion into the effective delivery of studies across south London.  Our Research Delivery Managers (RDMs) work to support a diverse research study portfolio.

Our ENRICH network brings together care home staff, residents and their families with researchers. It provides a toolkit of resources to help care homes make the most of research and researchers to set up and run studies effectively and collaboratively in care homes. Your ENRICH local contact is available to answer any questions or queries.

We also support the Government’s strategy for UK life sciences by improving the environment for commercial contract clinical research in the NHS and social care in the region. 


We provide the practical support that researchers in south London need to carry out high quality clinical and other health-related research studies in the NHS for the benefit of our local patient population.

Our approach for the current financial year is outlined in a two-page strategy document. If you want to read any of our annual report documents, our local engagement strategy or any other document, please email
