Improving performance in initiating and delivering clinical research

The Government is committed to creating the best environment for clinical trials and this includes a commitment to increase the number of clinical trials, improve clinical trial capabilities and reduce the time it takes to initiate and deliver studies, ensuring we are supporting the most innovative trials and meeting the needs of the Life Sciences Industry.

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) requires providers of NHS services in receipt of NIHR funding to measure and publish their performance in initiating and delivering clinical research. Publication of performance data using the agreed Minimum Data Set will better meet the needs of industry partners in research site selection and allow sponsors to view the most appropriate timelines for each clinical trial
