NHS Research Scotland promotes and supports excellence in clinical and translational research in Scotland so that patients can benefit from new and better treatments.
Formed through a partnership of Scottish NHS Boards and the Chief Scientist Office (CSO) of Scottish Government, we work to ensure that NHS Scotland provides the best environment to support clinical research.
An overarching aim of NRS is to ensure NHS Scotland provides the best environment to support clinical research. As such all Health Boards have a range of specific, measurable objectives which are measured on an annual basis.
Meeting these objectives has wider health and wealth benefits to Scotland.
