A vast amount of effective research and development (R&D) work is already going on in our region. The Oxford AHSN R&D programme supports the development of capability, capacity and collaboration across the NHS and our nine universities to make our region a more attractive place for research to improve healthcare locally, regionally and nationally. It aims to do this through closer collaboration between the universities, NHS and industry.
The Oxford AHSN is working with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Thames Valley and South Midlands Clinical Research Network, the Oxford Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) and others to support research, increase recruitment to trials, facilitate adoption of innovation, create coherent research platforms for partners and to deliver cost-efficiencies.
We will create an environment where every clinical encounter can contribute to research.
This programme is led by Prof Gary A Ford CBE.
