Identify UK sites for your study

Site identification

Our Site Identification service enables you to rapidly receive expressions of interest from investigators  throughout the NHS including 10,000+ General Practices in England and from the wider UK. All you need to do is complete one simple online submission form, with basic details of the study, and we will do the rest.  As with all our Study Support Services, this service is free of charge.

Interested sites are required to respond within 15 working days by completing  our expression of interest form. We will collate the expressions of interest and pass them to you or your chosen CRO. You can then engage directly with interested investigators and clinical teams for more in-depth selection and feasibility discussions.

Our national approach to site identification is a globally unique mechanism through which all NHS organisations and General Practices in the UK  can be notified of the latest commercial contract research opportunities and express an interest in participating. The information returned will provide you with up-to-date insight into the most suitable sites to deliver your study, while minimising the resources required to identify multiple sites.
