The UKCTG is being established by the National Institute for Health Research on behalf of all the UK Health Departments and with the assistance of a number of clinical research charities, research professionals and patient representatives. It fulfills the Government's commitment in the “Plan for Growth”, published by HM Treasury in March 2011 that the Government will open up information about clinical trials to enable the public to get involved and so that patients can find out about clinical trials that may be relevant to their condition.
The UKCTG will be continually developed over time. Please help us by sending in your feedback via the contact details on the When to Contact Us page.
