Please Note:

Due to local recruitment accrual and governance processes, recruitment of participants from hospice sites may have been attributed to the local NHS trust that provided research and development approval. It is therefore likely that the number of hospices recruiting to NIHR Clinical Research Network Portfolio studies is higher. If your hospice is research active and not listed here please let us know, contact
