Information for researchers

We are working in partnership with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network (CRN) to strengthen collaborative links between researchers, clinicians and patients.

When your study is accepted onto the NIHR portfolio, the CRN will support you to access our Research Ready accredited pharmacies.

If you are planning a study in a specific geographical location, then please get in touch as we may be able to focus on those areas to encourage uptake and growth of the scheme.

We are committed to raising awareness of the role the community pharmacy team can play in the design and delivery of research. In collaboration with the NIHR CRN we have produced a promotional leaflet, Planning a Research Study? Think Community Pharmacy which you can download.

If your study is not eligible for adoption you can contact the RPS Research Ready team for further information regarding Research Ready accredited pharmacies.

Please see table below for summary statistics of Research Ready pharmacies and their geographical location.
