Secure Patient Recruitment via General Practice
HIC works closely with the Scottish Primary Care Research Network (SPCRN) to enable patient recruitment across Tayside, Fife and beyond.
HIC also supports recruitment through specialist clinics at Ninewells hospital and directly from consented patient registers. These can all be managed by HIC and progress communicated with the research teams through the HIC recruitment tracker.
HIC prepares and sends bespoke project recruitment mailings and questionnaires, using dedicated volume print, fold/ insert software and equipment as shown in the HIC User Guide. Please see the flowchart on page 20 (fig 7) for more information.
