The Royal Free London is now starting the work of formulating the next trust strategy for clinical research and development and is seeking your help in shaping this. We want the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust to be a leading NHS research hospital. For this to happen we need to deliver our clinical research and clinical research services in a way that meet the needs of our staff and the patient populations that we serve.

To kick-start the development of the strategy we are running a series of 'Town Hall' events where we intend to share our plans for the strategy development programme and give our stakeholders the opportunity to share their views on the future direction of clinical research at the trust and to ask any questions that they may have on the strategy development. We will be joined at each session by one of our executive colleagues and a research participant. The events will be held on MS Teams and links for each date are below. 

Additionally, we have initiated some surveys that will also help us to better understand your views - these can be accessed using the links below. If you want to help shape the way clinical research is delivered at the trust and our strategic direction, please do join us for one of the 'Town Halls' and complete the most relevant survey to you. Your input will be invaluable to us and we’d be delighted to hear you views.
