FR Training

It is policy of the Trust that all involved in research have to undergo Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training. The R&D department organises GCP training for all staff who wish to be involved in research and refresher courses to update certification.

  • GCP half day courses are held in the R&D Board room on the 7th floor of the maternity block, Northwick Park and St Mark's Hospital (Map and directions). This course provides an intense overview of the fundamentals of GCP. Attendees are provided with a certificate at the end of the session
  • Online GCP training accessible on the web. This is organised by Epigium and consists of five modules:
    • Protocol and associated documents
    • Applications, agreements, approvals
    • Trial master files
