It is the largest (by geography and population) of 15 local Networks across England and works with 29 NHS Trusts (100% of which are research-active) and 22 Clinical Commissioning Groups. It makes sure that clinical research occupies the place it deserves to in the day-to-day work of the NHS across the West Midlands locality.
