We have a robust feasibility process with dedicated feasibility staff, including registered nurses, resulting in accurate feasibility projections and recruitment to target.

Our Clinical Research Nurse Facilitators have excellent working relationships with local clinical staff and support services making working with Tayside fast and effortless. Our feasibility response rate is the highest in Scotland at 94% (NRS Q1 and Q2 2019).

“The TASC R&D office are always responsive and engaged throughout study feasibilities all the way to study setup.”

Set up and delivery

Our Clinical Research Nurse Facilitators focus on delivering high quality commercial research to target. Our Facilitators support the development of study delivery and patient identification plans to ensure all potential recruitment options are available thereby optimising patient enrolment.

“I know that if anyone could deliver a complex study like this one it would be your team of investigators and their clinical trials team.”
