The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) has launched five new national patient recruitment centres (NPRCs) to enable more late phase commercial clinical research to be delivered within the NHS and make it easier for people to take part in studies.
The Bradford centre is one of five regionally based NPRCs funded through a £7 million investment as part of the Government’s Life Sciences Industrial Strategy and Sector Deal 2 – a series of measures to strengthen the UK environment for clinical research.
The centre is managed and operated by Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and funded through the NIHR. The centres are the first NIHR-funded research infrastructure wholly dedicated to delivering commercial research.
