Welcome to R&D

NHS R&D North West Team aims to
co-create a strategic approach to R&D.

The NHS R&D North West team has high aspirations for R&D in the North of England. Our ambition is to make the North West:

  • The region of choice to undertake high quality health research
  • Nationally and internationally recognised & acknowledged for its research strengths
  • Renowned for its high calibre R&D workforce and infrastructure to deliver high quality research


How can we help you: 

The NHS R&D North West Team provides strategic support and contributes to the work of a wide range of networks and forums. Through working with key organisations at a national (Department of Health, Health Research Authority, NIHR, Public Health England, Health Education England) and regional (North West People in Research Forum, Clinical Research Networks and NIHR advisory groups) level the Team is able to offer a strategic regional perspective linked to key national agendas. We facilitate NHS organisations, Universities, Industry and partner organisations to work collaboratively to develop and secure high quality, innovative bids for research funding. We aim to speed up the process of taking research breakthroughs into NHS patient care to improve treatments and patient care locally and for the wider NHS.
