11th June 2008Richmond Pharmacology's Volunteer Recruitment Database is a bespoke system designed to allow the entire journey of a volunteer to be tracked� from initial registration through study conduct to final follow up. This ensures that all information on our volunteers is available at the click of a button allowing us to provide you our sponsors with accurate up to date metrics on those volunteers you need for enrolment in your studies.A few facts:79 000 registered subjects to date (June 2008) includes but is certainly not limited to populations such as healthy young male and female elderly slim obese plus various patient and specialist populations, e.g. Japanese volunteers asthmatics diabetics MS patients those on warfarin and renally impaired subjects,On average between 1200 to 1500 subjects are registered per monthOngoing recruitment marketing campaigns direct volunteers to one of our three dedicated recruitment websites www.trials4us.co.uk www.trials4japanese.co.uk www.trials4patients.co.uk.The database has an activity level of approx 75%. I.e.75% of the population are currently actively looking for trials or are involved in trials Finally we have a significant number of volunteers who are repeat trialists due to the broad portfolio of trials which we recruit for and because the treatment they receive within our unit is of a very high clinical standard.Here are a few examples of comments received from our volunteers:The clinical staff and doctors are first class in every way. The trial was a real success The staff are lovely and helpful if you have any problems they help you out. I would recommend trials4us to my friends because its a good paid holiday; also I give the facilities a 10 out of 10.The facilities are excellent; I give them 10 out of 10! I would definitely recommend trials4us to my friends; its a fun safe way to earn a very good amount of money During the day on the ward I like to use the computer read lots of magazines and talk to friends who are also volunteering in the trial.I think that the staff at Trials4us are wonderful During the day I spend my time reading books surfing the internet watching movies playing card and board games.The staff are excellent, I really love the staff. The facilities are excellent I would give them 9 out of 10.For more information on our Volunteer Database or to discuss a forthcoming study please contact Charlotte Gowling.
