Optimising delivery

Early engagement with our service enables us to optimise study delivery upfront. However, if you have not benefitted from early engagement we undertake an assessment to inform and enable the type of support you’ll need. For example, this could relate to study support costs or on site research professionals.

You'll find information on how to access this service for commercial and non-commercial studies below. However, if you require any further assistance, please contact the Study Support Service Helpdesk on or call 0113 3434555

Commercial studies

For new commercial studies with pre-selected sites, the site intelligence service forms part of the assessment to determine eligibility for access to Clinical Research Network study support. It complements existing feasibility by using local site and study intelligence and expertise, including any competing or previous studies.

If you know what you need and how to access it, submit your study information via our online portal at

We have a range of guides to help you use the system.


Non-commercial studies

For new non-commercial studies, we utilise local expertise to identify any study challenges which may affect delivery to time and target, via a Clinical Research Network delivery assessment. These assessments support effective study start-up and appropriate performance monitoring.

Local Networks are alerted to your study on submission of your Portfolio Application Form via the IRAS system. Once received, the Local Networks will be in touch with you to request study information so that we can undertake a Network delivery assessment, utilising local expertise to identify any study challenges which may affect delivery to time and target.
