Performance in studies

As part of the Government’s Plan for Growth, the Trust is required to meet two National Institute for Health Research performance in initiating and delivering tesearch targets. These are:

Performance in initiation

It should take no more than 70 days to receive consent from a patient after a researcher has provided their study paperwork to the research department.

If we do not do this within 70 days it means the Trust has not met this benchmark.  However, studies are usually open for a few years, so even if the Trust does not meet the benchmark, patients can still be put forward for the study after this date.


We should have the number of patients consented into a trial within the timeline we agreed at the start of the study.  Please find below our performance for initiating and delivering clinical research.




Studies that did not meet the benchmark are mostly studies where patients have not met the inclusion or exclusion criteria.
