The Research Network is a vibrant group of people with a collective vision for developing clinical research across the North West Coast.  We facilitate meetings every six to nine months to discuss current research activity, engagement and developments that are happening both locally and across the North West Coast. There are great networking opportunities for cross pollination of ideas to explore key areas for research development too.

The group has representation from North West Coast Clinical Research Network (NWCCRN), Morecambe Bay Clinical Commissioning Group (MBCCG), Lancashire North GP Federation, University Hospital of Morecambe Bay, Lancaster University, University of Cumbria, Patient Research Ambassadors, Clinical Research Nurses, General Practitioners, Allied Health Professionals, Research Design Service North West (RDS NW), Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and St John’s Hospice.


The most recent Primary Care Research Locality Event was held on the 6 November 2019 – please find presentations here.
