Hope Clinical Trials Facility

The Hope Clinical Trials Facility is a partnership between University Hospitals of Leicester, the University of Leicester and Hope Against Cancer.

Based at the Leicester Royal Infirmary, it offers local people the opportunity to take part in clinical trials, and is one of the few such facilities outside London.

These pages list resources relevant to the work of the Facility.

General advice when looking for information

If you are using Google or another search engine to find information, check to see if the information you find has the Information Standard mark or a Health on the Net HONCode.  These mean it meets certain quality standards.  If neither mark is present, check who produces the information, why they have produced it, who for, and when.  Does it apply in the UK?

If you are UHL staff and need a literature search for research literature or clinical evidence, please contact the Clinical Librarian Service of the Library, and we will be pleased to help.   Email , or contact one of the libraries.
