A clinical trial is a particular type of clinical research that compares one treatment with another. It may involve patients, healthy volunteers or both.
Pharmacy has a vital role to play in relation to clinical research. The pharmacy team safeguard participants, healthcare professionals and the Trust by ensuring trial medications are appropriate for use and are obtained, handled, stored and used safely and correctly.
'As I was very, very nervous, I must have been the worst patient
