Leeds Clinic

Conveniently Located in the Centre of Leeds, UK.

When it comes to successful Phase I studies, we understand the need to combine state-of-the-art technology with a positive volunteer experience that builds trust and engagement. Although our site is dedicated to carrying out clinical trials as efficiently and safely as possible, from the moment volunteers arrive to the day they leave, we do everything we can to make them feel at home. Designed with comfort in mind, our facilities and volunteer entertainment team work tirelessly to ensure our volunteers’ stays are as enjoyable as possible.

We recently completed a significant investment to create a new Leeds clinical research unit (CRU), recognizing new opportunities to combine our existing breadth of medical resources and drive innovation forward. From increased cGMP pharmacy space to a larger clinic bed capacity, our expanded capabilities help optimize Phase I studies for clinicians and volunteers alike.
