Research for all

What we are doing

The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) is working with partners to develop the support it offers to physicians who are active, engaged or interested in research – from sharing examples of good practice to offering practical resources. 

In March 2016 we published Research for all, which drew on the findings of a 2015 UK survey exploring the current barriers to doctors’ engagement in medical research, and made 13 recommendations. 

July 2017 saw the publication of the follow-up report Research for all: Sharing good practice in research managementacommpanied by case studies of best practice.

What we have produced

The RCP is deeply committed to improving access to clinical research and supporting the integration of research into everyday care. The RCP has produced a roadmap documenting all key milestones that have been achieved since 2016.

Research is a team endeavour and is best cultivated through the strong relationships and positive culture.
