Clinical Research  

"Every clinician working in the NHS should be supported to become research active. High-quality research in the NHS is everyone’s responsibility and a core part of clinical care. " (RCP 2019)


Our aim is to support all clinicians working within Octagon in their clinical research activity, and to source and engage with appropriate research studies from various sources, including National Institute of Health Research (NIHR), academic institutions and industry.


Some of our Octagon Branches have a long history of being involved in Clinical Research and we are delighted that we have been successfully awarded a 2019/2020 Cluster Practice RSI Scheme contract from the Eastern Community Research Network (CRN).
