The Clinical Research Network provides a good infrastructure to support clinical research in the UK and the European Union, and provides support including identifying and recruiting patients, providing training so that researchers have access to experienced staff. In 2014, the Clinical Research Network pledged to delivery support to 1,477 new clinical studies.
