Statement on use of UoB as a site in regulated clinical trials

As per the Clinical Research Quality Manual (Word - 559 KB), the UoB would not normally act as a ‘site’ for regulated clinical trials or surgery trials (i.e. Clinical Trials of Investigational Medicinal Products (CTIMPs) or of medical devices). 

While exceptions to this may occasionally be made, where an exception is made this will be documented in writing in a letter from the University’s Head of Research Governance and Integrity. 

This means that no patients on CTIMPs, regulated device trials or surgery trials may be recruited, receive treatment or other interventions on University premises without the express written permission of the Head of Research Governance and Integrity.
