The CRF is a 220 metre-squared access-controlled, self-contained, bespoke clinical research area, based within Alder Hey with its full range of medical, surgical, community and mental health paediatric specialities.
The CRF is ideally located for patients, visitors and principal investigators as well as being close to the emergency department, intensive care, imaging suites and clinical laboratories. Our bright modern facility, built in 2016, operates to the highest standards and has undergone numerous successful inspections in accordance with UK Clinical Trials Legislation, EU Directives and MHRA GCP compliance.
The facility was co-designed with children, young people and their families to optimise user experience and patient safety through integration with main hospital facilities and services. The facility has specialist expertise in blood sampling in children of all ages, handling small volume samples and is the only UK paediatric CRF with dedicated paediatric clinical pharmacologists.
