Research opportunities

NCL Wide

As a local clinician, there are a number of ways in which you can get involved, from identifying potentially suitable patients to refer into studies to collecting study data. There are also CPD opportunities for those involved in some projects. Noclor strives to ensure research is cost-neutral to practices, and arrangements are in place to reimburse research-active practices for their time and resources. For clinicians with their own research ideas, Noclor may be able to help identify sources of support, such as training, mentorship and funding.
