This includes NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, NHS National Waiting Times, NHS Lanarkshire, NHS Ayrshire & Arran and NHS Dumfries and Galloway.  It is managed by the R&D office in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.  The West node leads on the IT infrastructure for NRS by hosting the Scottish Research management Database (SReDa) and the National Databases Coordintator.

NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde and the University of Glasgow founded Glasgow Biomedicine in 2004.  Focussed at the heart of Western Europe's largest acute hospital, the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital and in partnership with other West of Scotland Health Boards and Universities,  Glasgow Biomedicine supports clinical research by bringing together world-leading clinical academics and state-of-the art facilities with access to an NHS patient base of 2.8million (52% of the Scottish population). 

We support our researchers and partners throughout the clinical research process with a range of services designed to ensure scientific integrity, fast approvals, effective governance, proactive project management and robust data management and reporting processes. Our support function also includes developing a 'fit for purpose' translational research infrastructure within the NHS.  The partnership's research expertise includes world class strength in: Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences; Cancer; Infection, Immunity and Inflammation; Neuroscience and Psychology; Social Sciences and Health Economics; Paediatric Medicine.  We have state-of-the-art research imaging capabilities including CT and 3TMRI which will be strengthened with the UK's only 7T MRI scanner in a clinical setting from 2016.
