Performance in initiating and delivering clinical research
The government aims to increase the number of patients who have the opportunity to participate in research and see a dramatic and sustained increase in the performance of providers of NHS services in initiating and delivering clinical trials.
As a provider of NHS clinical research services we are required to publish our performance metrics relating to recruitment and delivery to clinical trials for the previous 12 months. These are reported quarterly under the following categories:
- Performance in initiating (PI) – reporting information for every clinical trial where the Date Site Selected (DSS) falls within the previous 12 months
- Performance in delivering (PID) – reporting information for commercial clinical trials hosted by the Trust which have closed to recruitment in the previous 12 months
For documents relating to the performance of our clinical research please see the National Institute for Health Research website.
