Commercial Clinical Trials

The Commercial Team at the Kings Health Partners CTO provides a streamlined service for commercial sponsors wishing to conduct clinical trials within the partner institutions to ensure that there are common, efficient processes for the set up and administration of clinical trials, and to assist investigators wishing to engage in commercial trials. The office includes clinical quality management and a training function enabling implementation and maintenance of common high standard processes across the partner institutions by ensuring that all members of staff involved in clinical research are fully equipped with the skills and knowledge required to conduct trials according to prevailing best clinical research practices.

The Kings Health Partners CTO has developed policies and processes to streamline clinical trials administration, quality and compliance. This activity hinges upon a collaboration agreement that delegates the management of these activities to the Director of the Kings Health Partners CTO.

The Commercial Team includes Clinical Trials Facilitators, Clinical Trials Agreement Associates, a Feasibility Specialist and a Finance Executive. Investigators also have the support of the Quality Team for training in GCP and management of quality issues.
