NIHR Patient Recruitment Centre: Leicester

We are one of five Patient Recruitment Centres (PRC) in England, dedicated to setting up and delivering late phase commercial clinical trials in the NHS at pace and scale. PRC Leicester is hosted by the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust and based at Leicester General Hospital.

The five PRCs work collaboratively, through an innovative national franchise-like model, to make it easier and quicker to deliver commercial research in the UK.

By attracting more commercial research to the UK, we increase opportunities for NHS patients to access cutting edge treatment and therapies that are not yet widely available through the NHS.
We work across the region, through our partners and stakeholders, to ensure as many people as possible are given an opportunity to take part in research.

We are proud to be situated in one of the most diverse, multicultural cities in the UK.
