BARONET GP Investigators share a wealth of experience over 20 years in both industry run clinical trials (Phase II - IV) and academic studies. We have a proven track record in delivering effective and timely recruitment in a wide variety of indications and understand the importance of patient retention in such studies.
All centres boast at least one dedicated Research Nurse/Coordinator. Whilst independent of each other, all centres work to BARONET SOP's for clinical trial related activities. Research Nurses meet quarterly at an update meeting which is designed to offer mutual clinical support but also to update each other on new developments. All GP Investigators have clinical time dedicated to research activities and meet as a group twice a year. BARONET conducts a regular GCP and regulatory update training event which is conducted by an external industry approved trainer, and opened up to other industry researchers in the area.
