New report shows clinical research improves health of UK economy and NHS

  Created on Tuesday, 05 Nov 2019.

The value of clinical research to the NHS, the UK economy and jobs market has been evaluated in a new report, which provides an assessment of the economic impact of the NIHR Clinical Research Network’s (NIHR CRN) activities to support clinical research in England. The report, produced by KPMG and commissioned by the NIHR CRN, covers the financial period 2016/17 to 2018/19 and shows that over this period, clinical research supported by the NIHR CRN generated an estimated £8bn of gross value added (GVA) and 47,467 full time equivalent (FTE) jobs for the UK.
