NHS Research & Development Forum

The UK professional network for the
research management, support & leadership
community in health and care

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.

Roundtables

Round table discussions can be based around new or emerging hot topics, tricky areas of practice or just facilitated ‘group thinking' time. 


We can also arrange for discussions to be with policy makers, experts and regulators in some cases.
