Before taking part in a clinical trial, you will need to come to our Leeds clinic for a medical screening appointment - like a full MOT for your health. During the appointment, we will collect some blood and urine samples, check your heart rate and blood pressure, and ask you some questions about your medical history. We use the information we gather at screening to make sure that the study you've chosen is the right one for you. We'll also guide you through an Informed Consent Document, which goes through everything that will happen on the clinical trial in detail, to make sure you are happy to go ahead.
Most of the time participants check into the clinic the day before the study begins. This is to help you get settled and comfortable. We will assign you to a room, give you a wrist band, and go over the rules of the clinic and anything particular to your study. The clinics are very much like a hospital floor, and you will share a room with other people of the same sex. We want you to be comfortable and at ease while you are at the clinic. When you are not having procedures done, you can read, watch TV, play games, join in activities like pool or bingo, or use your laptop or phone if you’ve brought one. Our clinic has laundry facilities as well if you will be staying with us for a while.
Before a drug can be prescribed, it must go through a long testing and approval process, including clinical studies. A clinical study is used to test new drugs (medications) and develop new uses for existing drugs.

Our studies usually require one or more overnight stays at the research clinic, and may require multiple outpatient visits. The number of visits depends on the requirements of each study.
When you stay at the research clinic, you will have multiple blood draws, physical exams and vital sign checks. Between procedures, you may have time to read, study, watch TV, play games, etc. Other recreational items such as a pool table, DVDs, board games and internet service are available.
Yes. You’ll be paid for your time and participation during the clinical study. The payment you receive varies from study to study, depending on its length and type. Payment details will be discussed with your study team at your first visit.
