Manchester Clinical Research Facility (CRF) has a team of highly-qualified nursing staff, clinicians, healthcare support workers, and radiographers.
Members of the team have expertise in a wide range of clinical specialities, and are employed on a permanent basis to support the delivery of research studies. We are committed to ensuring that our workforce is equipped with the appropriate skills, education, and training to deliver high quality research in a safe and supportive environment. Staff employed to work in the CRF receive a comprehensive induction programme, and competence is assessed annually against the Research Nurse Competency Framework. Annual appraisals and an annual learning needs analysis also determine facility-wide and individual learning programmes.
