Clinical Trials

A subsidiary of Riccarton Clinic, Clinical Trials @ Riccarton Clinic, manages investigations and studies for pharmaceutical companies in order to assist with the development of the next generation of medicines and treatments. Patients of Riccarton Clinic, and others, with conditions suitable for the trials may be invited to take part.

Clinical Trials @ Riccarton Clinic run studies which may be trialling drugs for prevention or treatment of chronic or acute conditions. This work supports the development of new products or the improved effect of products currently available to fight disease, treat chronic conditions, and generally improve peoples' health. 

The Principal Investigator is our GP Dr Jason Pryke who is well known to many of our patients.  He works closely with a team of other doctors and study nurses to provide a welcoming and safe environment for all our participants.  All our work is approved by the Health and Disability Ethics Committee (HDEC) and we follow Good Clinical Practice (GCP) at all times.

Volunteers who are willing to participate in these trials are sought from our enrolled patient database, and sometimes we advertise for patients from outside our practice.  Without volunteers the important work done on clinical trials would not be possible.  Our volunteers enable us to contribute towards the availability of more effective treatments and therapies.

Participation may involve receiving vaccinations or other injections, taking oral medication, having blood tests, or other non-invasive tests.  These are all done over a period of time, which varies depending on the trial.  We provide full support and advice throughout the trial. 

If you are interested in participating in a clinical trial, please contact us on 341 4857 or via admin@rcclinicaltrials.co.nz and we can add you to our list of volunteers.  If we find you may be suitable for a particular trial, we will send you some information to read prior to participating in the trial.  Once you have commenced on a clinical trial, you can withdraw your consent to participate at any time, and without giving a reason.
