Site identification

This offer of support is free of charge and is part of the Study Support Service.

Our site identification service enables you to rapidly receive expressions of interest from investigators from over 240 NHS organisations and 10,000+ General Practices in England. All you need to do is complete a simple online submission form with basic details of the study. After receiving expressions of interest, you can engage directly with interested investigators and teams for more in-depth site selection discussions.

Our national approach to site identification is a globally unique mechanism through which all NHS organisations and General Practices can be notified of the latest commercial contract research opportunities and express an interest in participating. It gives you an up-to-date insight into the most suitable sites to deliver your study, while minimising the resource you need to rapidly identify interested sites for detailed feasibility discussions - all for free.
