We are passionate about the contribution that clinical research can make to children’s health and it is our belief that every child should have the opportunity to participate in, or benefit from, ground breaking research.
Our aim is to find new treatments and establish the best standards of care for childhood diseases as well as ensuring that clinical research occupies the place it deserves in the day-to-day work of the NHS.
We work in partnership with the NIHR Children’s Clinical Research Network (CRN) in Wessex and around the UK. The CRN is committed to delivering research to make children and the NHS better. The network provides infrastructure that allows high quality research to take place in the NHS so that patients can benefit from new and better treatments. It supports researchers set up clinical studies quickly and effectively, provides health professionals with research training; and works with patients to ensure their needs are at the very centre of all research activity.
