The information and the links on this page have been developed for people, such as research nurses, NHS Blood and Transplant staff and consultants, who recruit participants to the NIHR BioResource.
At the NIHR BioResource, our participants are our priority. We are continually looking for ways to improve how we engage with participants and how we can make research more accessible within the wider community.
We are here to help. Please contact us with any queries and also to share good practice and examples of excellence.
When a site is approved to recruit to a specific BioResource panel we allocate it a specific site code. These are based on ODS codes already in use by the NHS.
Using the correct code is essential in our processes.

Participants are at the centre of our work
We continually seek ways to improve how we engage with participants and how we can make research more accessible to the wider community.
The Cambridge Nursing Team developed the Volunteer-Centric Model, for which they won an award, to guide research nursing practice. The model also acts as a resource for research groups.
We want participants to feel that we will go the extra mile to make it an easy and positive experience.
For researchers we offer a collaborative approach, focusing on delivery of your study to time with appropriate consideration of resources.
