Services Provided


The CRF provides a dedicated space for clinical research and is staffed with highly skilled research nurses and health care professionals.  This enables the CRF to safely and effectively conduct high quality patient based research including experimental medicine studies. We support the conduct of research across a wide range of disease areas.  The CRF offers an array of services depending on research requirements. Services include research nursing support, study coordination, regulatory affairs advice, investigational medicinal product management and laboratory resources. We can assist with negotiation of contracts on behalf of the Principal Investigator, advise with costings of studies for grants or health awards and provide study set up support. Essentially the CRF can provide a one stop shop from initial study feasibility to study close out.

We are keen to collaborate and support researchers.  We are here to provide the necessary skills required for successful completion of research projects. Researchers requesting access to the CRF for clinical trials or investigator led studies should contact us early in the process of planning a study so that we can advise on its resource requirements and feasibility.
