The CRF is funded by the NIHR to accelerate the delivery of experimental medicine clinical research and enable the faster translation of scientific discovery into patient benefit. We provide access to NHS patients and healthy volunteers in a dedicated, specialist environment within Sheffield Teaching Hospitals.
Open to researchers from all clinical disciplines, we are experienced in undertaking all types of commercial and academic sponsored clinical research; from first in man studies to late phase and observational studies. We can accommodate all types of visits, including overnight visits and have worked with most directorates within Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
Our tailored solution provides you with specialist research nurses, clinical trial assistants, and clinical research data coordinators to support the delivery of your study in the most appropriate way. We can also provide an outreach service for studies which depend upon delivering in their own clinical environment.
