The NIHR Sheffield Clinical Research Facility has been supporting clinical research within Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust since 2006 at both the Royal Hallamshire and Northern General Hospital sites.

The impact of the work that we support changes healthcare in the future; generating new treatments, finding new and better ways to deliver services and improving lives.
