About the Forum

The NHS R&D Forum is a UKwide community of practice and professional network for the health and care research management, support and leadership workforce.  Forum business and activities are coordinated on behalf of the community by an Executive group and a nonprofit organisation called Health Research and Development Ltd.

By working together we represent those who lead, promote, manage and support quality health research with and for NHS providers and commissioners of care; creating standards, supporting peers, and influencing UKwide bodies as a critical friend to improve practice. 

Our Vision is excellence in research management, support and leadership for high value research and for improved health and care.

Our Mission is

a) To add value to the NHS as enablers of quality research, innovation and improvement.

b) To act together as a UK-wide leader, influencer and professional voice, resource centre and facilitator of best practice to better lead, shape, promote and manage quality health research.
