Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust's Quarterly Returns for initiating and delivering research to the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).

"The government wishes to see a dramatic rise and sustained improvement in the performance of providers of NHS services in both initiating clinical trials and delivering research. The aim is both to increase the number of patients taking part in research and to enhance the nation's attractiveness as a host for research" 1.

Further to this we submit quarterly performance returns to the NIHR on two key metrics:

  1. Performance of Initiating: recruitment of the first patient onto a study within 70 days of a complete and valid submission of study-related-documents to the Joint Research Development Office.
  2. Performance in Delivery: recruitment of target number of patients to studies within the agreed time limit set out with the sponsor.
