Welcome to the Patient Recruitment Centre: Bradford
We are dedicated to setting up and delivering late phase commercial clinical trials in the NHS at pace and scale. We are one of five national Patient Recruitment Centres that work collaboratively, through an innovative national franchise-like model, to make it easier and quicker to deliver commercial research in the UK.
By attracting more commercial research to the UK, we also increase opportunities for NHS patients to access cutting-edge treatment and therapies that are not yet widely available throughout the NHS. We work across the region, through our partners and stakeholders, to ensure as many people as possible are given the opportunity to take part.

We improve the UK's competitiveness in the global market and provide opportunities for patients to benefit from early access to innovation.
