Performance, initiating and delivering clinical research (PID)

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.

The Department of Health wishes to see a dramatic and sustained improvement in the performance of providers of NHS services in initiating and delivery 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.

We report on a quarterly basis to the Department of Health our performance against national benchmarks for clinical trials hosted at Chelsea and Westminster.

The first benchmark relates to the initiation of clinical research. It should take no longer than 70 days following receipt of a valid research application to the recruitment of the first participant.

The second benchmark relates to the delivery of clinical research. For all commercial clinical trials, the agreed target number of participants should be recruited within the agreed timeframe.
