Help is available with the BSRBR-RA
If you do not have enough staff support currently, then in England the National Institute for Health Research Comprehensive
Clinical Research Network (CCRN) may be able to provide assistance
What is the CCRN?
The CCRN is made up of 25 Comprehensive Local Research Networks (CLRNs) which cover the whole of England. Each local
Network facilitates research within their region, with the aim of widening participation in research. A study is eligible for
CLRN assistance if it has been adopted on to the Network portfolio of studies; the BSRBR-RA was adopted on to this
portfolio in 2008 (ID: 7302).
How can my CLRN help me?
The CLRN may be able to help by assisting in R&D set up or by providing funding for the people/facilities you require in
order to carry out research in which you are involved in. For example, you may be allocated research nurse time or a data
clerk to assist with the recruitment and follow up of participants on the BSRBR-RA.
How can I apply for CLRN help?
You should contact the team within your regional network (details found via the link below) to discuss your requirements.
You will then have to complete an application form, with which we can help.

with the study. If you need any help with completing the paperwork, please contact [email protected]
