UK Clinical Research Network (UKCRN)
Clinical research networks have been established in each of the four UK nations funded by the UK Health Departments. Together these national networks form the UK Clinical Research Network (UKCRN), strategic oversight for which is provided by the UKCRC.
The structure of the networks varies between each country, but all share the common goal of providing the infrastructure to support high quality clinical research studies for the benefit of patients. There is a commitment to ensure that the clinical research networks across the UK work together in an integrated manner to share experiences, develop joint initiatives and promote partnership and UK-wide working wherever possible.
