Membership of the Forum is free and open to anyone involved in or interested in management, governance or support of research and development in the NHS or social care.

The Forum Executive and Working Groups are also looking at creating a scheme to allow professional affiliation with the Forum. This is work in progress and we will keep you updated but please do get in touch if you have any views on this you would like to share

Members receive the monthly email newsletters, with news and information about Forum activities and events as well as a roundup of news from key organisations.

Members of our working groups play an active influencing, development and support role.
