King’s Clinical Trials Unit (KCTU)
The King’s Clinical Trials Unit (KCTU) is the only UKCRC accredited Clinical Trials Unit across KHP and provides academic collaboration and/or service support to academic led clinical trials.
King’s Health Partners (KHP)
The King’s Health Partners (KHP) is one of only six Academic Health Science Centres in England designated by the Department of Health. The partnership brings together world-leading research at King’s College London and three successful NHS Foundation Trusts (Guy’s and St. Thomas’, King’s College Hospital and South London and Maudsley). The aim of KHP is to create a centre where world-class research, education and clinical practice are brought together for the benefit of patients.
King’s Health Partners Clinical Trials Office (KHP-CTO)
King’s Health Partners Clinical Trials Office (KHP-CTO) was set up as a joint initiative between King’s College London, Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust to formalise the pre-existing collaborations between the partners, to develop their clinical trials potential and to increase the quality and delivery of clinical trials. The CTO has two sections: the Commercial Team which provides a single interface for those wishing to conduct trials sponsored by the pharmaceutical and allied healthcare industries; and the Quality Team that supports investigators at King’s Health Partners institutions who undertake clinical trials where King’s Health Partners are sponsor or co-sponsor to ensure delivery of the statutory obligation contingent on sponsorship of trials.
