NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) East of England

The NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) East of England helps to increase the opportunities for people to take part in health and social care research.

CRN East of England also ensures that studies are carried out efficiently and supports the Government’s Strategy for UK Life Sciences by improving the environment for commercial contract clinical research in the NHS and social care across East Anglia.

The East of England Network is hosted by Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The host is responsible for ensuring the effective delivery of research in the Trusts, primary care organisations and other qualified NHS providers throughout the Eastern region.

We provide researchers with the practical support they need to make clinical studies happen in the NHS, so that more research takes place across England, and more patients can take part.
