PATIENT ENGAGEMENT

Encouraging appropriate patients to participate in your clinical research is a key element of the TCRS serviceSupporting patient recruitment is a key element of the TCRS offering.

Our patient engagement service promotes your study by harnessing innovative technological solutions. This includes the use of social media to target not only appropriate patients, but also their family members and carers.

We have worked with the National Institute of Health Research’s Patients and Public Involvement programme and held highly successful patient engagement events at local NHS hospitals.

We recognise that for a study to recruit and retain patients successfully, it must be compatible with the lives of the participants. This is why involving patients, and offering them support throughout the trial, is inherent to our service.
