National Institute for Health Research

Biomedical + Healthcare

We are the National Institute for Health Research. We fund health and care research and translate discoveries into practical products, treatments, devices and procedures, involving patients and the public in all our work.

We ensure the NHS is able to support the research of other funders to encourage broader investment in, and economic growth from, health research. We work with charities and the life sciences industry to help patients gain earlier access to breakthrough treatments and we train and develop researchers to keep the nation at the forefront of international research.

The Clinical Research Network, North West Coast is part of the National Institute for Health Research. We provide the infrastructure that allows high-quality clinical research to take place in the NHS in our local area, so that patients can benefit from new and better treatments. We help to increase the opportunities for patients to take part in clinical research and ensure that studies are carried out efficiently. We are hosted by Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust.
