Nihr Non Commercial Agreement

These model agreements apply to health services in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales; they replace the 2011 country versions. The accompanying guidelines provide more general information, an overview of changes from the 2011 versions, and additional information on how models should be used and under what circumstances. Feedback on the use of MICRA is welcome to support its future development. Electronic feedback to nocri@nihr.ac.uk clinical research projects often involves giving patients new treatments or changing the way care is delivered. Sometimes the cost of treatment for patients included in the research is lower, but there are often excessive treatment costs (CTE). For non-commercial research studies, these costs fall within the jurisdiction of the NHS and are funded by normal patient care commissioning rules. A formal contract agreement for each research study is an important step in the governance approval process. It is mandatory to have a signed agreement before a study is approved by the research and innovation department for all clinical trials conducted in Leicester hospitals. The content of contracts and agreements should include: When our member organizations provide funding through open competition, their “direct” costs for clinical research within the NHS NHS can be covered by NIHR Clinical Research Networks under the agreement “Attributing the costs of Health and Social Care Research and Development (AcoRD) developed by the Department of Health and Social Care (AcoRD). The NHS and HSC NSCs should be established through a subcontracting agreement with participating NHS and HSC organizations. Under the AcoRD agreement, AMRC financiers are not required to pay: the presentation is structured to meet the requirements of non-commercial proponents and NHS research organizations (or others) and to be designed as a single Uk agreement model, meaning they can be used regardless of where the sponsor and research site are established. National site location agreements help speed up the process of awarding trials in the NHS supported by industry, as there is no longer a need for site-by-site controls and local legal agreements.

This allows studies to start earlier, improve the speed of industry-sponsored clinical trials and enable patients with NHS to access innovative treatments more quickly.
