Hra Pic Agreements

Published by at 9:17 am under Uncategorized

Under the new Uk Local Information Packs, research organisations can benefit from the HRA`s model agreements for NHS or HSC participant identification centres, known as PICs. Nationally approved standard location agreements help speed up the contracting process of industry-sponsored studies carried out in the NHS by creating the need for site-by-site verifications and local legal agreements. This enables an earlier start-up, improves the speed of industry-sponsored clinical trials and allows NHS patients to access innovative treatments faster. The series of model location agreements is supported by guidelines that set out the objectives and will detail how the agreement should be used in the development of clinical research contracts sponsored by pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical or medical companies. Please note that agreements must be signed by a chief member of Research & Impact Services, not by chief investigators or division heads. Please contact your R&IS Division Manager for signatures. These model agreements apply to health services in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales; They replace the national versions of 2011. The accompanying guidance notes provide more general information, an overview of changes from the 2011 versions, and other information on how the models should be used and under what circumstances. The Clinical Trial Agreement model for primary care research (Primary Care mCTA) sponsored by the biopharmaceutical industry has been developed and approved by the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry, the BioIndustry Association, a number of very active GPs, the British Medical Association, the Medical Protection Society and the UK Health Services. The Health Research Authority (HRA) supports the use of model agreements. Model Participant Identification Centre (PIC) agreements are now published and are available in addition to the instructions in iras help. For more information, see Warwick Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). This is a best practice guide to all aspects of conducting a study in the NHS.

Please note that these SOPs apply to all Warwick-sponsored studies and are not limited to clinical trials.. . . .
