About the NHS R&D Forum

We want to see health & care improvement through quality research
rooted in our organisations and systems, enabled by an
effective and valued R&D workforce.

The NHS R&D Forum began in 1998 to bring together Research Managers and Directors working in R&D Departments across the NHS.

Since this time the Forum has grown to reflect the changes in an R&D function, welcoming the breadth of professional, patient and public roles and those working right across the health and care landscape.

The NHS R&D Forum is now a UK-wide, self-funding non-profit organisation, with strong partnerships right across the health R&D community. We have a broad membership and as such we are uniquely placed to bring insight and expertise to our stakeholders and the Forum as a whole.
