Our Trials Performance

Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust clinical trials performance is measured against two national benchmarks to improve the initiation and delivery of all clinical trials approved by the Trust. As the government wishes to see a dramatic and sustainable improvement in the performance and deliverance of services by allied healthcare professional, future NIHR funding to the Trust will be conditional on meeting these benchmarks.

  • Initiating Clinical Research - Providers of NHS services must submit within 30 days of the end of each quarter information for every clinical trial where the Date Site Selected falls within the previous twelve months.
  • Delivering Clinical Research – NHS providers must submit within 30 calendar days of the end of each quarter information for every commercial contract clinical trial hosted by the NHS provider closed to recruitment in the previous twelve months.
