David Lovett, Principal Pharmacist for Aseptic Services & Clinical Trials, Leicester Royal Infirmary has asked me:
Does anyone have a feel for how universities acting as sponsors for CTIMP studies manage their sponsor regulatory responsibilities in relation to IMP's i.e. do they employ clinical trial pharmacists (full, part time or contracted as and when) or do they have SLA's in place with a local NHS Trust Pharmacy dept.? I suspect some of both up and down the country. We are looking at this issue currently in Leicester via an SLA with ourselves, but wondered if we could adopt a different and better funded approach in the future. Our local difficulty is that the University of Leicester houses the medical school and associated academic medics doing research, whereas De Montfort has the school of pharmacy and therefore there is no readily available pharmacy input for the medics within the same institution or history of employing pharmacists at UoL. At Nottingham both are under the same roof and a pharmacist is employed part time for this activity. I intend to contact her to find out more, but in the meantime I'd be very grateful for any info recived from others.
If anyone can advise David would they please email him at [email protected]
