Simple processes, better trials, improved healthcare

Our Mission is your Mission

Our mission is to deliver focussed and streamlined clinical trials which improve patient outcomes, patient experience and healthcare.

Clinical trials are the essential tool to answer new questions and test old assumptions in healthcare, but trials are complex projects, requiring specific skills, language, practice and knowledge – and it is professional trial coordinators that provide this expertise.

Doing things differently…  clinical trial coordination as a service

With our focus on swifter translation of health research into the clinic, we established the HMRI Clinical Trials Unit to provide clinical trial coordination as a service. To enable more clinicians to start clinical trials, or to supplement your existing portfolio, our goal is to facilitate and enable you by offering:

  • Clinical trial conduct from beginning-to-end
  • Consulting to assist existing teams
  • Discrete services within your current trial

Our aim is that you experience:

  • Quicker/easier navigation of site governance process
  • Robust recruitment and data collection
  • Easier participation in clinical trials
  • A smooth and seamless journey through a clinical trial
