Lancashire Clinical Research Facility


An early success story that’s run in partnership with Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Central Lancashire, our nationally-recognised Lancashire Clinical Research Facility conducts a range of pioneering research trials into both physical and mental health conditions that affect our local and wider patient community.

Within a short period of time, our research nurses, managers and members of the public have worked tirelessly to create a state-of-the-art facility that has allowed research across both our hospitals and Lancashire Care to go from strength to strength. Already, we have been able to conduct a host of studies into life-threatening illnesses and have been successful in securing a prestigious funding package from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), which will see our facility receive a fantastic £750,000 over the next five years, aiding us in our aim of carrying out world-class research within experimental medicine.

In addition to working with our dedicated research teams, the facility also welcomes staff with a keen interest in research to share their ideas and present suggestions for future studies. If that's you, then joining Lancashire Teaching Hospitals will provide you with endless opportunities to develop and share your expertise, and hopefully leave a lasting mark within your field of interest.


NWC Awards 2017 shortlisting: Within it's first year, our Lancashire Clinical Research Facility was shortlisted at the prestigious NWC Awards in their 'Delivering Research in Collaboration' category, for creating enhanced research opportunities within our region alongside Lancashire Care.
