Clinical Support Team

We have an experienced and enthusiastic team of specialist research nurses and support workers. The CRF has a core team of clinical staff and an affiliated team of research nursing staff working across the Trust delivering clinical research.


Research Nurse Team

Our Research Nurse Teams work across both sites of the Hospital and with over 20 different specialities.  They are able to see patients or volunteers within the CRF or alternatively, they can visit patients in their regular clinic environment within Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to minimise inconvenience to patients and embed research into standard care pathways.


Higher Level Support Worker Team

Our support worker team provides across site cover working closely with the Research Nurses to provide a close interaction with patients and visitors to the CRF. The team also provide phlebotomy and laboratory support.


Clinical Trials Assistant Team

Our Clinical Trials Assistant team work under the supervision of the Research Nurses. They are a flexible delivery team who are able to assist with data collection and data management, as well as providing clinical and recruitment support.
