Working with us.

We are supported by the University of East Anglia, Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital Trust and the NIHR.  Our remit is to support local and national investigators to deliver high quality trials that answer important clinical questions. Further information about the NCTU is available in our NCTU overview.

Please contact us for any new trials you are planning by downloading and completing our collaboration request form.

Email the completed form to NorwichCTU@uea.ac.uk.  A member of the CTU will contact you to discuss your proposal and the next steps that you will need to take.

Trial activities we will typically be involved in are described below.  We can only act as your official Clinical Trials Unit if we have oversight of the main trial activities.  Please note that if you only require randomisation and database support, this may be available, depending on capacity at the discretion of the CTU Director.  Provision of data services alone does not enable a trial to be an official Norwich CTU trial.
