We caught up with Ben Hood, CRUK Senior Research Nurse at Newcastle ECMC, to hear about his recent win at the RCNi Nurse Awards and all the amazing work he has been doing in Newcastle. He talks about the impact of COVID-19 on his role and the work being done to ensure patients are still able to take part in early phase trials.
To coincide with 'International Nurses Day' and 2020 being 'The Year of the Nurse', we spoke to two research nurses in the ECMC network to find out more about their roles and how COVID-19 has impacted them.
Almost 200 delegates from across the ECMC Network came together on 23 May 2019 for a chance to hear updates from the Programme Office, network with other ECMC members, and participate in some interesting discussions on complex trial design and patient referral.

In January 2019 we held the seventh annual Junior Investigator Network Group (JING): Training the Next Generation event.
Over 100 people from across the ECMC network came to the two-day residential meeting in Cardiff, to learn more about early-phase trial design.
With CRUK and CSO joining NIHR as funders, the ECMC Programme Office will for the first time provide full support for the Paediatric Network through the recent recruitment of a dedicated Paediatric Network Manager. July saw the first Programme Office supported meeting of the ECMC Paediatric Network, bringing together both location and scientific theme leads from the network, alongside representatives from the Programme Office and CRUK, to discuss how they will work together over the next five years.
10 May saw the return of the Annual Network Meeting and, with 2017 marking the network’s 10th anniversary, it was indeed a very exciting and special event. Over 260 attendees from across the network joined us in the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London.
