Here at UHNM we work in partnership with the NIHR Clinical Research Network West Midlands. This organisation helps to increase opportunities for patients to take part in clinical research, ensures that studies are carried out efficiently, and supports the Government's Strategy for UK Life Sciences by improving the environment for commercial contract clinical research in the NHS in the West Midlands.
It is the largest (by population) of 15 local branches in a co-ordinated national Network
The Network team is passionate about the contribution that clinical research can make to patient care, and works collaboratively with other NHS providers to translate that passion into the effective delivery of studies in the area.
It makes sure that clinical research occupies the place it deserves to in the day-to-day work of the NHS across the West Midlands locality. This includes Trusts, primary care organisations and any other qualified providers of NHS services.

The Clinical Research Network is part of the National Institute for Health Research, the clinical research delivery arm of the NHS.
