NHS R&D Forum Partners

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.

Excellent relationships with organisations that might have an impact on research in health are critical to the work of the Forum. We regularly meet and talk with the following partners; attending meetings, supporting and testing projects and inviting representation at our group meetings and events.

This might involve:

  • Representing the R&D Forum community and R&D functions, sharing issues and providing news and feedback to our members
  • Helping to shape and influence policy and strategy
  • Sharing the insights, priorities and needs of our community
  • Testing ideas and suggestions for policy or work streams.

Our partners include:

  • NHS England and Improvement
