Clinical trials are funded by a range of public, charity and commercial organisations, including by the Department, via the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR). Information on the sex of patients enrolled in NIHR-funded clinical trials is not currently collected centrally. However, the forthcoming Women’s Health Strategy aims to ensure that data collected through research improves women’s health outcomes.
