NIHR CRN Generic Research - Scarborough
We are a multi-skilled research team supporting the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network's (CRN) portfolio of research studies. The team is focused on the facilitation of research trials within Scarborough, Bridlington and Malton Hospitals, and encouraging the local primary care service to be research active.
We offer a wide variety of studies to our patient populations in secondary care and have strong relationships with our on-site clinical staff at our local hospitals. Over the years we have strengthened our research in a number of key areas including Dermatology, Rheumatology. Orthopaedics, Stroke, Surgery, Palliative Care, Maternity, Neurology, Gastroenterology, Anaesthetics and Paediatric services.
Our focus in these areas has led to us generating excellent links with some of the country's biggest national Universities and Research Organisations to deliver both Observational studies and more complex Drug studies (Clinical Trial of an Investigational Medicinal Product, CTIMP).

Our Research Team
Our Team is based at our Scarborough General Hospital and is made up of two multi-skilled NIHR CRN Research Nurses and a Clinical Trials Assistant. We are supported by a NIHR CRN Senior Research Nurse and our research studies are set up with the assistance of a Research Delivery Facilitator from the Research and Development team.
Each member of the team has research expertise in different disease areas. This enables the team to offer a wide portfolio of research opportunities to patients. All members of our team are trained to national standards of Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and do undertake further study specific training when required.
