Who we are looking for:
PAREXEL are recruiting healthy students aged 18-64 for paid Clinical trials taking place at Northwick Park Hospital in Harrow, Greater London. Not only will you get a free comprehensive medical examination, you will be compensated from £100 a day for your time.
About Clinical Trials:
The development of an innovative new treatment is often a lengthy and costly process - all treatments will have previously undergone rigorous testing in the laboratory before progressing onto testing in humans.
A clinical trial is the term used to describe the testing of a new treatment or medical device to evaluate whether the drug or device is effective and safe for people to use. Other terms often used to describe clinical trials are drug studies or drug research.
Clinical trials are carried out under the strict supervision of fully qualified doctors, nurses and other health professionals and all trials must first be approved by an Independent Review Board (IRB). IRBs comprise both laypersons and professionals - their main concern is safeguarding the interests of the participants.
All PAREXEL clinical studies are done in accordance with ICH Clinical Practice (GCP) which is an international ethical and scientific quality standard for the conduct of trials. We also follow the regulatory guidelines set by the country that the study is being conducted in.
By volunteering for a PAREXEL clinical research trial, you are not only helping to benefit the wider community through the development of better medicines, you'll also be paid for your time and any inconvenience.
As a participant in a clinical trial, you are making a substantial contribution to finding new and better ways to help other patients in the future. In addition, some other benefits of volunteering are:
You may benefit from a new and better investigational medication that is not currently available to the public.
Any medical exams, tests and/or procedures that you receive during the study will be FREE.
You may receive additional attention from healthcare providers involved in the research and your medical care. Free meals and care for the duration of your stay. Payment for your time based on a daily rate from £100 per day.
