Please contact Kings Health Partners CTO Clinical Trials Training Team to register on to a course.

GCP Training Sessions:

“Good clinical practice is a set of internationally recognised ethical and scientific quality requirements which must be observed for designing, conducting, recording and reporting clinical trials that involve the participation of human subjects.”

All staff involved in Clinical Trial research are required by law to be qualified by education, training, and experience to perform his or her respective task(s). This requires all staff to attend GCP training.

The EU Clinical Trials Directive (2001/20/EC) was transposed into UK legislation in April 2004 and became effective on the 1st May 2004. The original UK regulations were amended in August 2006 to incorporate the EU Good Clinical Practice Directive (2005/28/EC). The legislation does NOT differentiate between commercial or academic clinical trials and must be followed by all staff involved in the conduct of clinical trials with an IMP (drug) known as CTIMPs.
