We Conduct Trials With The Highest Standards Of Safety

The safety of our volunteers is always our number one priority. For all our clinical studies, there is a team of highly qualified doctors, nurses and technicians providing 24-hour cover to monitor and care for the volunteers taking part. Our trials are approved and monitored by the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency), and they look at every detail of our processes including staff training, our facilities and all our quality procedures before we can be recognised as a suitable unit for clinical trials. An independent ethics committee also looks at all aspects of a new trial and will act to safeguard the rights, safety and well-being of volunteers who wish to take part. Our staff are here to support and guide you throughout your experience and you can ask as many questions as you like before you come in for your trial, and during your stay.
All Our Clinical Trials Follow EU Regulations
All clinical trials performed in the European Union must be conducted in accordance with the EU Clinical Trials Directive issued by the European Parliament and of the Council.

The Clinical Trials Regulation aims to create an environment that is favourable for conducting clinical trials, with the highest standards of patient safety, for all EU Member States.
Working Together To Protect Your Safety
All our clinical trials have to be approved by an independent ethics committee. These are independent groups made up of a mixture of health professionals and non-medical people. They ensure patients are given all the information they need. Data monitoring committees monitor the safety of a clinical trial and how well a treatment is working. They can stop a trial if it is causing harm to a person. All clinical trials have some form of insurance to compensate patients in the unlikely event something goes wrong.

How Do You Benefit?

How Do You Benefit?

There are lots of advantages to taking part in a clinical trial with Clineer– knowing that you are helping develop the medicines of the future, giving up your time to help others, a free comprehensive health check as part of your screening for the trial and getting paid for your time. You will also get to relax amongst a group of like-minded people – in the last year alone we worked with over 1,000 volunteers from all sorts of backgrounds – from firemen and accountants to students, social workers, nurses and cabin crew. You will also be able to enjoy being looked after at our clients’ state-of-the-art facilities with a selection of films, television and games to choose from, and all of your Chinese meals prepared for you.

Comprehensive health check

The health check you receive is a great opportunity to check on your well-being. It involves a thorough physical examination, recording your height, weight, blood pressure and heart rate; a check of your heart function, and both blood and urine samples will be taken. And it goes without saying that if we pick up anything that might be of concern, however slight, we will tell both of you in case you want to check anything out in more detail.

Your payment and travel allowance

You will receive payment for taking part in a clinical trial*. The amount you receive will vary from trial to trial depending on its length, a number of overnight stays and the number of return visits. As a minimum, for each trial you take part in you will receive at least £100 per day as well as a travel allowance to attend the clinic. Participants are reminded that they are responsible for their own tax affairs. If you are receiving benefits you should check with your benefits provider whether payments from clinical trials will affect them. You will get payment details and lots of information about what will happen in the trial in the informed consent document which we will send you when we book you onto a trial.

Maximise your social and leisure time

We have a dedicated team to ensure you have an enjoyable stay. They collect your feedback, progress any actions and keep you entertained throughout your stay with weekly quizzes and bingo to get your brain going. You can also relax with TV, our DVD library, games room with Xboxes; and a wide range of books, magazines and newspapers. Alternatively, if you prefer socialising, you can chat to other volunteers, play various board games or take part in pool tournaments. We think you will enjoy staying here, and if you are a student, you will find it the perfect place to catch up on studying. Feel free to bring your laptop or tablet with you, as we have free Wi-Fi in the clinic.
