Global Clinical

Site Accreditation

A global standard evidencing clinical trial site quality, efficiency and capability to sponsors,
patients and staff

A global quality mark, designed to evidence the very best sites across the UK and beyond.

With hundreds of sites across the UK carrying out clinical research, it’s not always clear to Sponsors, CROs or other stakeholders which sites are high performing, efficient and reliable locations to place their research – meaning they often go with what, or even, who, they know.

GCSA has been developed as a global quality mark for clinical research, designed to evidence the very best sites across the UK and beyond – with the aim of increasing both the quality and quantity of clinical research carried out and therefore providing access to innovative treatments to more patients.

For sites who are unlikely to meet the quality standard, but already have a large number of trial applications, the GCSA assessment process is an excellent place to uncover opportunities for improvement to start an improvement journey.
