As the CRF is embedded within the Royal Liverpool Hospital we also have access to facilities for a variety of other study procedures such as endoscopies, bronchoscopies, MRI scans, CT scans, biopsies, nuclear medicine, and various ophthalmology procedures.

The CRF is experienced in conducting high quality research in a variety of topic areas and is ideal to perform clinical trials from phase I to IV due to its:

  • ​State of the art purpose built facilities for up to 12 patients
  • Embedded within a large hospital providing direct access to 24 hour emergency coverage and ITU
  • MHRA Phase 1 Supplementary and Standard Accreditation
  • A strategic alliance with one of the global leaders in early phase drug development and a preferred partner for many companies in the biopharmaceutical industry (Covance)
  • Support from The University of Liverpool and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine
  • A rapidly expanding database of both healthy volunteer and patient populations (C4C)


  • Fully compliant with GCP
  • MHRA inspected & phase 1 accredited
  • Inspected by sponsors on a regular basis
  • Quality Control and independant Quality Assurance

Access to volunteers (Consent 4 Consent)

The CRF has a large validated database of volunteers, consisting of both healthy and patient populations. With direct links to t​he clinics within the hospital, and recruitment staff working within such clinics, these numbers are constantly growing. The database can be used to quickly extract metric and contact information of potential participants and to produce reports about the feasibility for potential trials.
