As a consultancy working with small and medium enterprises (SMEs) which innovate in healthcare, we recognise that our clients, seeking product validation through clinical trials, need to work with an organisation that is flexible, responsive, and cost-effective.  For this reason we repeatedly refer clients to Derby Clinical Trials Support Unit, where our experience and client feedback is consistently excellent. I will not hesitate to continue such recommendations and referrals in future.

Kate Pym, Managing Director, Pym’s Consultancy.

I have found the Derby Clinical Trials Support Unit both friendly and very helpful.

I am very pleased that they agreed to look after the I-BiT Plus project.
