Performance in Initiating and Delivering Clinical Research (PID)
We want to make sure that more patients have the opportunity to take part in research. As part of our research performance reporting to the Department of Health under the ‘Performance in initiating and delivering clinical research initiative’, we need to publish information relating to:
1: Recruitment to clinical trials, namely whether the 70-day benchmark to recruit first patient into the trial has been met (Performance in initiating clinical research)
2: Recruitment to time and target for commercial contract clinical trials (Performance in delivering clinical research)
More information on PID can be found on the National Institute for Health Research website.
