Read about pragmatic trials

The Unit receives National Institute of Health Research CTU funding. This funding has been awarded to support the Unit in developing  and supporting NIHR trials.

The Pragmatic Clinical Trials Unit is a UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC) registered, and National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funded unit that aims to be at the forefront of the science and execution of pragmatic clinical trials with direct relevance for practice. We work across many different clinical areas but have particular strengths in primary care, mental health, women’s health and colorectal surgery.
