Working with Clinical Research Organisations (CROs)

"PPD has worked with Health and Care Research Wales for more than four years to bring high quality commercial research opportunities to patients in Wales. 

Using the all Wales feasibility service has enhanced our feasibility and site selection activities, and has made local knowledge of care pathways and potential investigators easier to obtain, which have helped PPD maximise the number of feasibility studies routed to NHS hospitals in Wales. Those studies have included haematology, oncology, cardiovascular, neuroscience, infectious disease and general medicine.

The Health and Care Research Wales industry team has been extremely responsive by providing invaluable assistance in seeking ways to overcome obstacles related to study start-up activities."
