Site Selection

When R&D Offices hear of a new study, commercial or non-commercial, they contact local researchers and workforce to establish interest and to check if the study would be feasible - checking if local sites have the patients required and the capability and capacity to deliver the study.

For commercial studies, the Health and Care Research Wales Support Centre coordinate expressions of interest to identify other interested researchers.

The Support Centre also manages a network of around 100 Research Practices in primary care across Wales in our PiCRIS scheme who are ready to engage and participate in research.
