About Our CRO

We are a Contract Research Organisation (CRO) specialising in Phase I to IV clinical trials. Also offering two niche services alongside this, on or off-site clinical research nurses and medical photography. We have a wealth of experience in many therapeutic areas specifically: respiratory, dermatology, and orphan diseases. Our staff have many years’ experience providing a wide range of clinical development services to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries.

Unlike many CROs, we only take on projects that we know we can deliver to a high standard. Illingworth does not have the full-service capability, but we partner with specialists in each field, as we are in ours. Our clients appreciate this honesty and integrity.

From our experience we’ve found it can be faster to obtain regulatory approvals for studies in the UK. Illingworth also had the unique experience of being the first CRO to use the new HRA approval process for a commercial CTIMP, several months before it was due to be launched.  During this process we worked with the HRA to help develop the procedures; we worked with the sites involved to help them work their way through this brand new system. Although this experience was UK focused we gained a unique insight into approvals processes more widely.

We have an extensive network of contacts within the industry and can put you in touch with the right people for your business. We can help you understand market access, clinical study requirements and study planning. Illingworth would be happy to assist with specific market information and have been successful partners for clients outside of the EU, specifically providing EU legal representative services for those companies who are not present in Europe.
