Managed Recovery Process

A National process is currently underway to identify interventional, multi-site clinical research studies that are both urgent and should benefit from the support of NIHR CRN, NHS research Scotland, and R&I to fully recruit and/or close in the next year.  Chief Investigators will be contacted directly if their projects have been selected by the funder for the managed recovery process.  There is no intention that this process will result in any pause or withdrawal of support for studies active within NHS GG&C.

Since July 2020, NHS GG&C have initiated a local process for restarting all studies paused due to COVID-19. Locally, work continues to ensure that all studies are able to return to normal recruitment activities.  In addition to local efforts and participating in the UK Managed Recovery Process we will continue to prioritise (please note the order does not indicate priority levels):

  • NHS GGC locally sponsored/co-sponsored studies and in particular those involving early career researchers who have limited time to complete their funded clinical research.
  • Studies that include routine standard of care as an option
  • On going “urgent public health COVID-19” studies (e.g., Oxford-Astra/Zeneca, Novavax, Valneva and COV-BOOST vaccine trials; OCTAVE and SIREN etc)
