Research & Development
The Albany House Medical Centre Research & Development Unit is a facility dedicated to the performance of Phase ІІ - ІV clinical trials in Primary Care. The Unit has been conducting trials since 1999.
These trials have involved a diverse range of therapeutic areas including diabetes, asthma, cardiology, dermatology, gastro intestinal disorders, arthritis, hyperlipidaemia, contraception and depression.
We have worked with most of the major companies, including GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, Astra Zeneca, Novartis, MSD, Eli Lilley and Jansson.
Academic bodies that have utilised the Unit include the University of Birmingham, University of Glasgow, Imperial College London, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, University of Nottingham and the Diabetic Trials Unit at Oxford.
Some patients may receive a letter inviting them to participate in a clinical trial. Participation is entirely voluntary and non-participation will not affect your care in any way. If you are invited, and have questions you would like to ask, our Research & Development nurse (Kate O'Brien), will be pleased to answer your questions.
If you receive an invitation to participate in a study and do not want to participate, please call Kate O'Brien on 01933 234 038. If you do decline to participate in a study, please have no concerns that your care would be affected in any way.
