Clinical Trials

Arrow In this section

Pharmacy has a vital role in relation to clinical research, which is to safeguard participants, healthcare professionals and the Trust by ensuring Investigational Medicinal Products (IMP’s) are appropriate for use and are procured, handled, stored and used safely and correctly in compliance with current legislation.

We ensure that IMP’s are procured, managed and dispensed in accordance to the study protocol and that clinical trial procedures comply with relevant guidelines and regulations.

The pharmacy clinical trial team consists of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians and assistants who are solely designated to the day to day management of over 190 clinical trials.

It is vital that pharmacy are involved early in clinical trial set up so that we can ensure the Trust is complying with regulatory requirements. We can assist with sourcing clinical trial medication and randomisation and blinding if required.
