COVID-19 and research trials

From Monday 16 March 2020, recruitment of patients to all studies, other than those studies relating to COVID-19, will cease. This is to allow our clinical colleagues to focus their care where it is most needed. We are reviewing the trials we have open and are in contact with sponsors. The safety of our patients it always our priority.

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.

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.
