Helping you run clinical research in the NHS, public health and social care settings
The CRN West of England, hosted at UH Bristol, facilitates research in NHS, public health and social care settings, supporting portfolio studies in 30 specialties in sites such as universities, schools, care homes, hospices, prisons and clinical settings.
To be eligible for portfolio inclusion, your study must meet the definition of research, have ethical approval and full funding from open national competition.
The CRN Study Support Service offers advice at every stage, from whether a study is feasible to help with permissions in different settings to the delivery of research.
They also offer free training for research teams and encourage healthcare staff and the public to be part of research.
