Stanmore Clinical Research Centre:

The Stanmore Clinical Research Centre (SCRC) is part of the RIC Infrastructure. It supports the development of project ideas, and its core function is to support the recruitment of patients into studies. Our set-up turn-around times are low, and we aim to deliver on time. The facility boasts Research Nurses/Practitioners and dedicated clinical space for study appointments with patients. Our current focus also aims to deliver incorporated specialist clinical staff within individual units with a research component to their role (e.g. CNS/Research Nurse posts)
