Clinical Research Network West Midlands

Primary Care

NIHR funds, enables and delivers world-leading health and social care research that improves

people's health and wellbeing and promotes economic growth

We help to increase opportunities for patients to take part in clinical research, ensure that studies are carried out efficiently, and support the Government's Strategy for UK Life Sciences by improving the environment for clinical research in the West Midlands. We provide support for researchers and healthcare professionals involved in primary care research studies so that patients can benefit from new and better treatments, and we can learn how to improve NHS healthcare for the future.
