NIHR 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.

From Q1 2014/15, The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust is required to provide and publish data on how it is performing in initiating and delivering clinical research. The data shows the length of time between the date when researchers first applied for NHS approval (called NHS Permission) to carry out a clinical trial and the date when the first participant was recruited to the trial.

Information is also provided on trials that have finished, showing whether the trial achieved its anticipated total recruitment target.
