UK Clinical Trial Gateway

About the UK Clinical Trials Gateway


At the NIHR, we want to help you to make informed choices about taking part in clinical trials.

That’s why we’ve set up the UK Clinical Trials Gateway (UKCTG) to help give you the confidence to join clinical trials, by providing useful information about how trials work and helping link you to researchers running trials you might be interested in.

The UKCTG also helps researchers find suitable people for the trials they’re running.
