NIHR Clinical Research Network East Midlands

The Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland Comprehensive Local Research Network (CLRN) is one of 25 CLRNs across England.

It forms part of the NIHR Comprehensive Clinical Research Network (CCRN) which provides support for clinical trials and other well designed studies in all areas of disease and clinical need.

The NIHR Clinical Research Network is the clinical research delivery arm of the NHS. We operate nationally across England through a national coordinating centre and 15 local branches delivering research in the NHS across all disease areas.

The NIHR Clinical Research Network East Midlands is hosted by University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. The host is responsible for ensuring the effective delivery of research in the Trusts, primary care organisations and other qualified NHS providers throughout the East Midlands area.

The NIHR Clinical Research Network: East Midlands helps to increase the 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 East Midlands area.

We are passionate about the contribution that clinical research can make to patient care, and work collaboratively with other NHS providers to translate that passion into the effective delivery of studies in the area.

We make sure that clinical research occupies the place it deserves to in the day-to-day work of the NHS across the East Midlands area. This includes Trusts, primary care organisations and any other qualified providers of NHS services.
