Wellington Hospital’s CTU is a dedicated clinical research facility funded by the Capital & Coast District Health Board.

Here, patients and volunteers can participate in medical research programmes that are run according to robust trial protocols.

Clinical_Trial_-_influenza_017.jpgThe 14-bed unit is the first to be located in a New Zealand public hospital, offering unprecedented access to the state-of-the-art facilities of a major regional institution, including radiology, intensive care, library and pharmacy services.

The CTU has access to a wide range of clinical specialists and networks for single-centre and multi-centre clinical research trials. Researchers are able to continue medical studies overnight, allowing closer monitoring of participants for longer periods and significantly enhancing the potential scope for clinical trials.
