Performance in Initiating and Delivering Clinical Research (PID)

The government wishes to see a change and an improvement in performance of providers within the NHS Services, which are involved in clinical research.

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) has been given this task by the Department of Health (DH) to oversee this activity.

The main purpose of PID is to ensure that more patients are given the opportunity to participate in research and to make research more attractive within the UK. The NIHR wishes for the outcome of all clinical trials starting from 2013 to be published and benchmarked against contracts signed by each NHS organisation.  The publication needs to be easily available to the public.

The NIHR outcome measures include:-

  • An initial benchmark of 70 days or less from the time an NHS organisation receives a valid research application to the time when the provider recruits (or consents) the first eligible patient for that study (performance in initiating clinical research)
  • The NHS provides performance in recruiting time and target for commercial clinical trials (performance in delivery of clinical research)
  • East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust (EKHUFT) has created this web page to provide information on PID (see table 1 and 2)

This information is starts from 01 April 2014.
