North West Surgical Trials Centre (NWSTC)

The North West Surgical Trials Collaborative (NWSTC) is one of nine RCS Surgical Trials Centres that have been established since 2013.

In 2022, the Centre was renamed as the North West Surgical Trials Collaborative to better reflect the academic surgical activity across the North West of England. NWSTC is embedded in the Liverpool Clinical Trials Centre and is a collaboration between the University of Liverpool and the University of Manchester and their trials units: the Liverpool Clinical Trials Centre and the Manchester Clinical Trials Unit. The collaborative is funded by the Sir John Fisher Foundation / RCS Chair of Surgical Trials in Liverpool (Professor Michael Jenkinson) and the Masonic Charitable Foundation / RCS Chair of Surgical Trials in Manchester (Professor Cliona Kirwan).

The NWSTC aims are to:

Develop and deliver world class surgical trials (including translational research) that will improve the outcomes for surgical patients
Develop and provide training for new surgical Chief Investigators
Provide research training through short courses, workshops and sandpit days
Develop an extensive network of academic and NHS surgeons in the North West across all surgical specialities
Support and mentor the surgical trainee collaboratives, including the North West Research Collaborative, North West Breast Research Collaborative, and Liverpool Trainee Research Collaborative
