Celebrating CRPs Event 2022

On the 14th March over 300 CRPs and their colleagues and managers came together to celebrate CRPs and mark one year of the accredited register.  We heard from a range of speakers from the Academy for Healthcare Science (AHCS), National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) and DHSC.  Importantly we heard from CRPs themselves – talking about their achievements, their experience of making their application to the register and challenges they face. 

The recordings from the day and the speaker slide sets are all available to view.

There were also lots of questions on the day, some of which our panels answered.  In addition we now have an FAQs document that responds to some of these questions.


Welcoming registration for CRPs - March 2020

The event was a chance to update on the progress we had made so far on the initiative and look at how piloting of the registration process would work.

The event was opened by William van’t Hoff, CEO of NIHR Clinical Research Network who outlined the importance of the contribution of CRPs to the vision of the NIHR. Other speakers included Emma Lowe, Research Policy Senior Manager, Industry Relations and Growth at the Department of Health and Social Care, CRPs Kayleigh Gilbert, Imogen Sargent and Angharad Williams.
