Trial management


Our trial management team can support you in the effective delivery of your trial, ensuring optimal recruitment and conduct of the study by:

  • providing registration of the study on the appropriate publically accessible database
  • coordinating Integrated Research Application System (IRAS) submissions to obtain the appropriate approvals (for example: Research Ethics Committee (REC), Health Research Authority (HRA) and Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency)
  • selecting site, set up and ongoing management 
  • monitoring trials to ensure conduct according to protocol and key legislation
  • overseeing and escalating safety reporting for the trial
  • maintaining study documentation and filing
  • providing a central point of contact for queries and general facilitation of the trial
  • support for the reporting requirements of the trial, i.e. preparation of Annual Progress Reports to REC and HRA
  • close out of the trial, and preparation for archiving  

Please get in touch with us as soon as you have a research idea so as to get the appropriate support.
