Opportunity to tender - Coordinating Centre for the NIHR Clinical Research Network

3 September 2013

The Department of Health (DH) will shortly be inviting tenders for the contract to provide the NIHR Clinical Research Network Coordinating Centre (CRN CC).

The NIHR CRN is funded by the Department of Health to provide world class health service infrastructure to support clinical research across the full spectrum of disease and clinical need in the NHS in England. It comprises staff embedded in the NHS who support the initiation and delivery of research. The CRN allocates and manages funding to meet NHS Service Support for eligible studies.

The NIHR CRN plays a key role in delivering the NIHR's mission of improving the health and wealth (economic growth) of the nation and the CRN features in the government's Strategy for UK Life Sciences. Last year the CRN supported research in 99% of NHS Trusts/Foundation Trusts in England.

The new contract is for a CRN Coordinating Centre function to be in place from April 2015, replacing the current contract.

DH is to hold a supplier information day in London on the 25th September 2013. Please email: fao Paul Eagleton by 20th September for more information and/or to register to attend this event.

Potential applicants are advised to refer to information on the OJEU Tenders Electronic Daily:
