The Translating Knowledge into Action theme of CLAHRC YH is overseeing the repository. We are using our expertise in knowledge mobilisation to work with researchers across CLAHRC to develop tools for use by clinicians, managers, commissioners, patients, educationalists and other researchers.

Find out about our new website and rebrand from HSRN to HSRUK.

We’ve decided to rebrand and refresh HSRN to create a more distinct identity and website for our members and for the health services research  (HSR) community in the UK . We believe that the work that we do within the field of health, higher education, the NHS and policy are extremely important.

Our new website is a platform to promote HSRUKs work – a resource for everyone interested in innovation, evidence and improvement for health services, and to engage with our members.

For the HSR community Our open access content is for anyone to access and contains the latest information on health services research including news, jobs, blogs, events, abstract calls and more.

For members Our member’s area allows all HSRUK members to access additional, locked content as a key member benefit.  This includes publications, presentations from leading researchers and e-bulletins.

Help us grow and continue to be the voice of health services research in the UK.

We want to keep this website as relevant as possible for our members and for the HSR community.  If you would like to post any stories, blogs, events or other news items please get in touch. We  also welcome any comments and feedback on the site and how it’s working for you.

 HSRN Health Services Research Network

The Health Services Research Network (HSRN) is a membership network for organisations and bodies across the UK with an interest in health services research. We aim to connect universities, commercial organisations and NHS bodies interested in HSR. The network was based at the NHS Confederation but is now based at Universities UK as of 1 April 2013.

More about HSRN:

The Health Services Research Network (HSRN) represents and connects everyone interested in health service innovation, evidence and improvement. It is the collective voice for health services research in policy and practice. It brings together those who produce and use evidence to improve services.

HSRN is a self-supporting membership network with over 100 members, mostly research units and NHS organisations, but also with a growing number of third sector bodies, professional groups and private sector associates. The network is hosted by Universities UK and governed by a board drawn from service leaders, funders, HSR and implementation academics, and others. The HSRN is supported by the Health Foundation and the Nuffield Trust.

The HSRN aims to:

  • influence policymakers and managers to support better use of research and to ensure that research priorities reflect the needs of the public, policymakers and those responsible for the management of the system
  • campaign for secure funding for HSR and measures to improve HSR careers
  • promote interchange between health services research, clinical work and management
  • provide a collective voice for researchers in the wider policy debate
  • promote issues of common interest to funders, universities and Government.

It does this by:

  • representing the HSR community to Government, funding organisations, the management community and other professional bodies by initiating and leading discussion and responding to policy issues
  • organising events to promote HSR and provide opportunities for dialogue between researchers and with managers
  • building international links with equivalent bodies.

The HSRN provides a unique opportunity for communication between health services researchers, managers and policy makers.

Our membership includes groups of health services researchers in universities and other institutes (representing over a 1000 people), and NHS bodies with an interest in HSR and knowledge transfer.
