Internationally recognised Good Clinical Practice training
We provide Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training for all site personnel involved in delivering commercial research throughout the NHS in England, free of charge.
Our training programme has been developed with the support of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). It has also been added to the list of programmes mutually recognised by TransCelerate member companies, so you can feel confident that it meets UK regulatory requirements.
It also means that, when a study is placed at a site in the NHS, if the Principal Investigator and the research team have completed GCP training provided by us, they will not be required to undertake further company-specific GCP training. This will help to streamline study set-up and allow research teams to focus on other important set-up activities such as pre-screening patients.
Our GCP training is readily accessible across the whole of the NHS in a variety of formats.

Our GCP training meets these standards.
What is Good Clinical Practice (GCP)?
The principles of ICH-GCP is an international standard for the conduct of clinical research. Undertaking clinical research in compliance with the principles of GCP provides assurance that the rights, safety and well-being of trial subjects are protected, and that the results of the clinical trials are credible and accurate.
