Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (ICHT) is experienced and well-equipped to support delivery of commercially-sponsored clinical trials (phases I–IV). We work closely with our colleagues in the NIHR Imperial Clinical Research Facility, Children’s Clinical Research Facility and NIHR North-West London CRN to provide smooth and swift study set-up, and recruitment to agreed times and targets.
An integrated R&D Directorate provides a full range of support for commercially-sponsored clinical trials, from initial approach, through robust feasibility assessment, contract and cost negotiation, to delivery of patient recruitment to time and target. ICHT negotiates and signs around 100 new commercially-sponsored trial agreements, and recruits around 500 patients each year.
ICHT performance for initiating commercial CTIMP studies within 70 calendar days is currently 96% (adjusted in accordance with NIHR PID metrics).
