Performance in Initiating and Delivering Clinical Research

The Government wishes to see a dramatic and sustained improvement in the performance of providers of NHS services in initiating and delivering clinical research. The aim is to increase the number of patients who have the opportunity to participate in research and to enhance the nation’s attractiveness as a host for research.

As part of the oversight of this aim, providers of NHS Services are required to publish information on recruitment to clinical trials and delivery to time and to target for commercial clinical trials.

The tables on this page include the latest reports on our performance in initiating and delivering research up to Q3 of the 2019/20 reporting year – 1 October 2019 to 31 December 2019. The reports cover a rolling 12 month period from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2019.
