We facilitate and manage phase 1b, 2, 3 and 4 clinical trials in most patient disease areas.

  • For these we recruit Primary and Secondary care patients from a catchment area of more than 7 million.
  • We offer our clients direct access to 15 hospital and 20 GP sites in East Anglia and Yorkshire.
  • Our hospital and GP Investigators are all ICH-GCP trained.
  • They are supported for the duration of a study by our Research Nurses (RNs) – with NHS Trust honorary contracts they manage all aspects of the trial including patient recruitment, clinical trial procedures and Sponsor communication.
  • Rapid clinical trial set-up is ensured by our Study Start-up Group – managing the submissions to LREC and Trust R&D for local approval.
  • On-going study support is provided by our Study Management team.
  • Feasibility studies to identify suitable sites are free, with no obligation. Where possible they include notes searches and database reviews.
  • As a Single-Point-of-Contact between our Sponsor and our Investigator / Trust, we speed up and improve communication - facilitating contractual and financial negotiations - allowing Sponsor and Investigator more time to focus on the study.
  • Our revenue is generated through patient recruitment - concentrating our efforts on meeting recruitment targets and producing quality trial data.
  • This complete service is offered without being any more expensive than other UK providers.

Feasibility Studies

The first step to a successful trial - we provide free, no obligation feasibility to identify suitable sites and to help plan and fine tune the full trial.

We provide 2 levels of feasibility, both are free:

Step 1: Quick Review

Step 2: Detailed Review


Early Phase Research (Phase 1b/2a)

With our facilities, patients and expertise we are your ideal partner for “first-in-patient” trials which present a unique combination of challenges.

Dedicated Research Facilities

The purpose built Research Facilities at Cambridge University Hospital offer the specialist facilities often required for early phase trials. The facility provides the following:

Sheffield Royal Hallamshire Hospital also has Clinical Research Facilities. The facility provides the following:

West Suffolk Hospital has also developed Clinical Research Facilities. The facility currently provides :

Patient Recruitment

When a trial is run at any of these Research Facilities patients are recruited from within the hospital and, when required, from other hospitals and GPs within the region. Our Research Nurses identify suitable patients and refer them to our local research team. It means we are able to recruit relatively large numbers of patients quickly for most therapeutic areas.

Expert Advisory Support

We provide both scientific and logistical expertise. Our expertise is based on eight years of recruiting for both primary and secondary care studies in a broad range of therapeutic areas. When a client undertakes a study in a new or unfamiliar therapeutic condition our input at an early stage can make a positive difference to the outcome of the study.


Vaccine Trials

We have been running these specialist clinical trials in the UK since 2006. In this short time, we have consistently proven that our model is successful by achieving all our recruitment targets.

Investigator Sites

We run vaccine trials within both our Primary or Secondary Care Networks of investigator sites. So whether you are looking for one or 35 sites in the UK, we can meet the most demanding recruitment needs.

Patient Recruitment

Running trials across primary and secondary care, means we can recruit for most vaccine trials including:


Study Management and Project Support

Our Study Management team have the local knowledge and expertise to manage all aspects of a trial. Led by the Clinical Operations Manager, they ensure the smooth set-up and rapid delivery of study objectives. Together with our Project Support functions trials are run and managed closely throughout.

In addition to these ‘core services’, we can, through partner relationships, provide an “a la carte” menu of additional services - including protocol writing, drug importation, monitoring, data management and report writing. For more details please click here
