Our performance

National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network

In recent years, the number of new studies and patients engaged in research activity has increased year-on-year.

NIHR collects data on a large percentage of all the clinical research taking place across the country.

In the most recent results, published in June 2020, University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB) was in the top 20 performing trusts, with more than 7,000 new patients taking part and more than 350 open studies. Figures for the 2020/21 financial year are expected to be significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Detailed performance information

UHB has been significantly improving its performance for many years for initiating and delivering research. The NIHR Clinical Trial Performance (CTP) website contains full details of UHB’s performance for each quarter.
