Want to volunteer for a clinical trial and get paid?
Before new medicines are given to patients, they must be tested in approved clinical trials. If you're a healthy man or woman, aged 18 to 75, you can volunteer. So while you relax in our comfortable facilities, catch up on sleep, play on our Game Boys and PlayStations, or watch the latest DVDs, you might help us find a treatment for a disease. Simple really, and we'll pay you for taking part!
Are trials safe?
The medicines we study are all tested thoroughly before we give them to volunteers. All our trials are reviewed by an independent ethics committee, who ensure that the information we give you is as full as possible, and that our trials are ethical. A UK Government agency reviews them to make sure they are as safe as possible.
Am I eligible to take part?
If you're healthy and aged 18 to 75, you might be eligible to take part. We do trials in young and old people, fat and thin, men and women, and smokers and non-smokers. We also do trials in special groups like people with asthma or migraine. You won't be able to take part if you've done another trial or given blood in the last 3 months, or have used recreational drugs, like cannabis, in the last 6 weeks. You must be registered with a GP and not take regular medication.
We've collected satisfaction questionnaires from more than 10,000 volunteers. The results shown are from 1,732 volunteers in 2007.
What's in it for me?
Aside from the satisfaction of helping medical science, we’ll pay you for the time you spend here. We’ll give you free meals and accommodation and access to our leisure facilities – free wireless internet connection, games consoles etc. You’ll also get a free medical, including blood, urine and heart tests.
