NIHR Clinical Research Network North East and North Cumbria provide the infrastructure that allows high-quality health and social care research to take place across the region, improving the lives of patients, service users, carers and the public.  We do this by working together with health and care providers locally to deliver a wide range of research studies in hospitals, GP surgeries and out into the community.

NIHR CRN NENC provide training and support to ensure a high quality workforce and rewarding careers in research across the North East and North Cumbria area.  Our network of staff mange research studies to make sure the important questions are answered, to improve care pathways. and the health of our population. 

The engagement team provides communications and patient and public involvement and engagement (PPIE) support to our network of research staff, patients and public.  The team work to ensure patients and the public are at the heart of everything we do, and that their experience and expertise is valued. 

We are excited to be working in partnership with VOICE to offer varied research opportunities to as many people as possible, all in one place!

NIHR CRN NENC is passionate about involving patients, carers, service users and the public in all work and raising awareness of the value of research.  We do this by:

  • Co-design - jointly designing events and campaigns aimed at the public
  • Co-production - designing and producing patient and public information online and leaflets
  • Co-delivery - jointly running workshops, using patient and service user stories as part of research staff training courses and meetings, and attending events to talk to health and social care staff and the public about research
