Your Path in Research

Without research, we would not have the interventions and the NHS we have today. If you provide care in the NHS then what you do and how you do it will have been influenced by research.

Research happens every day, right across the NHS and in a multitude of settings,and you can find out more about how the NIHR can help you engage with research  on the main NIHR website.

ENRICH (Enabling Research in Care Homes)

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. Local contact information.

West Midlands Schools Research Network

The West Midlands Schools Research Network is a collaborative initiative between schools across the region and the NIHR CRN West Midlands.

Mental and physical health problems among children and young people are on the rise. It is in this context the Schools Research Network has been developed. We will be able to influence, be part of, and explore together health and care research in school settings.

By getting involved in UK-wide and global research studies, with a focus on the health and wellbeing of children and young people, school children can learn about different types of research and gain skills and confidence at an early age.

Midlands Health Alliance

The Midlands Health Alliance's vision is to work together to ensure a step change in the quality and quantity of high quality clinical biomedical research in the Midlands related to patients, public and industry.

By working together they will develop; a common strategy for maximising the impact of our research streams; standardised tools and approaches to clinical patient recruitment and study setup, a clear infrastructure for signposting our capabilities to industry. Find out more on the Midlands Health Alliance  website.
