Performance information on the initiation and delivery of clinical research

The Government wants to see a dramatic and sustained improvement in the performance of providers of NHS services in initiating and delivering clinical research.

The Government’s Plan for Growth, published in March 2011, announced the transformation of incentives at local level for efficiency in initiation and delivery of clinical research.
