Clinical Research Practitioner Directory

Apply to join the CRP Directory

You can apply to join the CRP Directory if you are:

  • not registered to a healthcare profession
  • working in a research delivery role that involves direct contact with patients, or other study participants, in a clinical environment or other health and social care research setting

There is a £10 fee to join the CRP Directory and this will be reapplied annually to renew your listing. CRPs listed will be notified in advance by the Academy for Healthcare Science. Once an accredited register is established a £30 fee will apply. If you are already listed on the CRP Directory the fee to register will be £20 for the first year.

CRP’s listed will be notified in advance by the Academy for Healthcare Science. The information in your CRP Directory account will be held in line with AHCS Privacy and Legal Policy. A data sharing agreement exists between the NIHR Clinical Research Network and the AHCS for the purpose of understanding more about the CRP workforce and informing future developments.

A listing on the CRP Directory does not guarantee eligibility to join an accredited register (the criteria of which are still being finalised).
