Most People Would Do Clinical Trial

20 May 2016, 12:51

A survey of the Thames Valley has found 93% of people living in Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire would be willing to take part in a clinical trial.

Currently, the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust alone take part in around 200 trials every year.

It's thought 10,000 patients have taken part in the past two years and the majority have had access to drugs which haven't yet reached the marketplace.

The Trust receive around £1 million a year of government funding to encourage research and development and tell us they are keen to boost patient participation and for more clinical staff to come up with their own suggestions and ideas based on their day-to-day experience.

But what is it really like for the patients on these trials?
