The NHS R&D Forum connects, supports and represents those in R&D roles who are working to benefit patients and the public by enabling healthcare research and innovation to happen in the UK. We host the UK directory for all R&D offices and non-commercial Sponsors and the NHS R&D Forum resources exchange.
We want to see improvement in health and care through inclusive impactful quality research that is rooted in our organisations and systems, enabled by an effective and valued R&D professional workforce.
Working to advance our practice we share and develop resources, create standards, support colleagues, and provide a quality learning and development Programme that includes training, symposia, networking opportunities, events and roundtable discussions.
Through our groups and partnerships, community insights and expertise we aim to shape the health and care environment for research; influencing UK policy and practice system-wide as well as in our own organisations. We are open to all across the community to join and get involved.
Our next virtual round table will take place on Friday 12th March, from 11.00am-12.00 noon. You are invited to join the discussion and Q&A with the Forum contracts group and 4 nations contract leads on the updated model contracts.
