NIHR research award for Coventry and Warwickshire Trust

Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust has won a NIHR award for increasing recruitment of patients into research studies. Researchers have facilitated a 2,000% increase over the last few years and were nominated for the award by the regional Mental Health Research Network.

The trust won an award for “outstanding contributions” in the Commercial Research Endeavors category. Researchers opened and ensured the delivery of their first commercial trial to time and on budget and have since run two more, as well as clinical consultants mentored to act in key research roles.

Professor Scott Weich, the trust’s clinical lead for research and innovation, said: “Numerous expressions of interest have been completed and the team have worked tirelessly in liaising with industry partners, persuading them of the trust’s ability to deliver their studies.

“This is important for developing improved links with industry, and for helping make sure that patients get the best deal possible from the NHS in the future. We also want our patients to be as involved in their care as they can be, as we know this helps us achieve the best outcomes for them.

“We were honoured to be nominated for this award by our peers, and were proud to collect it at the NIHR’s prestigious annual ceremony.”
