Top performers in Clinical Research Network Respiratory Specialty 13th June 2018

A report from the UK Research Network Respiratory group highlighted the success of STH Respiratory Directorate. In 2017/18 we were the top performing NHS Trust in Yorkshire & the Humber for Respiratory NIHR Portfolio studies, with the highest number of patients recruited and highest number of studies. In England the ACTIF trial to support adherence in Cystic Fibrosis was the highest recruiting interventional Respiratory study (as well as the biggest ever UK randomised controlled trial in CF). In the Y&H region we had 2 studies in the top 5 highest recruiters (CF Health Hub Data Observatory and Pulmonary Hypertension Biobank). Congratulations to everyone in the Respiratory Directorate and our research partners.
