We are one of 15 Clinical Research Networks (CRN) delivering health and social care research across England. We help to increase the opportunities for people to take part in health and social care research, which will lead to better health and care outcomes now and in the future.
In response to COVID-19, our core team are now working from home. We are still open for all day to day business and we will continue to hold planned meetings and training via teleconference or webinar.
If you have any questions about our response to COVID-19 or need to contact our team please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How you can help support COVID-19 research
The UK public can support the national effort to speed up vaccine research and receive more information about volunteering for clinical studies by visiting www.nhs.uk/researchcontact to join the NHS Covid-19 Vaccine Research Registry.
The Registry was launched by the Government in partnership with the NIHR, NHS Digital, the Scottish and Welsh governments and the Northern Ireland Executive in July. It aims to help create a database of people who consent to be contacted by the NHS to take part in clinical studies, to help speed up the development of a safe and effective vaccine.
Our network serves Cornwall, Devon and Somerset. We make sure that research occupies the place it deserves in the day-to-day work of health and social care organisations across the region. We support research delivery by:
Working in partnership with NHS trusts, CCGs, universities, local government and research funders to enable world-class research
Providing professional support services for the effective delivery of health and social care research
Improving the environment for commercial contract research
Supporting sites to manage their study performance and deliver to time and to target
We are part of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) which funds, enables and delivers world-leading health and social care research that improves people’s health and wellbeing and promotes economic growth.
