Feasibility is the starting block for you to begin your clinical trial. We can help you by running complex and powerful searches over our depersonalized patient record footprint in Greater Manchester to locate eligible patients who can be screened and invited to participate in your study by their family doctor.

How we work with you during the feasibility phase

We create a tailored feasibility study utilising one or more of our following services:

  • We interrogate our existing healthcare data to identify where your drug, device or intervention is likely to provide the most benefit to patients and the wider NHS.
  • We support you in designing and testing your protocol using FARSITE.
  • We provide you with access to our extensive network of clinicians and the wider Manchester health eco system.
  • We will help you to recruit patients and assist you in identifying sites for your trial.

Our experts will support you with identifying potential data sources to measure study end points.


Here are some of the unique benefits of working with us during the feasibility phase of your trial;

  • Increased confidence of patient recruitment to time and target - enabled through use of FARSITE augmented with detailed local site knowledge.
  • More accurate modelling of potential value - using large, detailed, linked, and longitudinal patient level data from existing electronic health records (EHR).
  • Improved study success rates - by testing and refining early protocol designs using real world data, clinical expertise, and electronic health record (EHR) know-how.

FARSITE is an incredibly powerful tool

It never ceases to amaze me how surprised and impressed our clients are when we use FARSITE to identify thousands of real patients for their studies in literally seconds.
