DHSC creates new NIHR Research Delivery Network

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has created a new NIHR Research Delivery Network (RDN) to support the successful delivery of health and
social care research in England.

The network, which will start operating from next year, will play a critical and active role in implementing government policies.

It will support in implementing the Life Sciences Vision, the Future of UK Clinical Research Delivery vision, and policy for life sciences research and development.

The new network would be mainly working on growing the amount of commercial clinical research as its key strategic ambition.

Also, NIHR RDN will be responding to the findings of the Lord O’Shaughnessy review, which set out a clear blueprint for how the UK can return to its global
leadership role.
