Clinical Research Zone
Research is a Patient Priority
According to an independent poll published earlier this year, 82% of the public believe it is important for the NHS to offer opportunities to take part in healthcare research. Promoting the chance to take part in clinical research is also one of the pledges contained in the NHS constitution, and the patients have a right to take part in a clinical research study if they meet its criteria.
The National League Table for Research Delivery
The NIHR Clinical Research Network is committed to making NHS research delivery performance transparent and visible, so that healthcare and patients can see how well the pledge in the NHS constitution is being delivered.
With this in mind, league tables and heat maps of research activity for all the Trusts in England have been published on the Guardian online NIHR Clinical Research Network Partner Zone. The league table not only show which NHS Trusts are delivering the most studies overall in England, but also show the leading Trust in the different categories across the NHS.
