About Us

You are here

Noclor is an NHS-based Research Office serving a partnership of North London NHS Trusts, primary care organisations, social care services, and other settings outside the NHS. Our mission is to make research everybody’s business, maximising research opportunities not only for NHS staff, but also for patients and carers.

Welcome to Noclor

The roots of Noclor, our NHS Research Office, were established over a quarter of a century ago as part of what was then a community healthcare trust in North Central London. Those roots have since grown and spread considerably as we have been joined by a wide range of NHS Trusts and organisations that share our vision of producing and sharing high-quality research.

It is our privilege and good fortune to be able to collaborate in our work with some of the leading researchers in the world, innovators who are breaking ground on future health improvements.


What We Do

As a research office, we provide a variety of services to support studies from initial concept through to delivery.

We process sponsorship requests for staff employed by our partner trusts, put together review contracts necessary for sites to agree participation.

We have teams dedicated to supporting research in primary care and in settings outside the NHS. This includes the co-ordination of study set-up, site selection and delivery.

Our delivery teams will assist trusts with engaging services, identifying patients and obtaining informed consent.

Further information on what we do is available on our services page.

Who we work with

We have formal partnerships with a range of North London NHS Trusts providing mental health and community services. We also have a number of allied academic institutions and other organisations that we work in collaboration with.
