When you think of volunteering for the greater good of science, most people would think of donating blood. Advertisements are plastered all over the television, suggesting that if you donate blood, you can save the lives of at least three people. But what if you want to do more than that? What if you want to possible help save the lives of thousands of people or even yourself just by volunteering for one simple test?

Well, now there is a new way to volunteer your services in the name of science.

You can become part of the volunteer database at Richmond Pharmacology and help to improve the scientific knowledge of mankind in order to cure illnesses.

Richmond Pharmacology’s in house and patient recruitment department is the largest of any clinical research organisation in the United Kingdom. With their extensive experience of recruiting volunteer panels such as young male and female, obese and lean, asthmatic and diabetic volunteers, the database grows at a rate of 1,000 to 1,500 new registrants per month. This type of growth is critical to make sure that volunteer panels meet the scientific criteria in order to carry out each study efficiently and effectively. Telemarketing and advertising professionals deliver the message to a number of people to grow the database.

Known for their ability to draft challenging panels in short periods of time. Recently, they enlisted Multiple Sclerosis patients for an essential early phase trial of MS therapy. The company was able to enrol 70RRMS patients in a record six months from only one centre. Numerous other similar companies have adopted their practices as standard.

‘Being able to mobilise a team at a moment’s notice is something we are used to’, a company spokesperson revealed. ‘Our ability to adapt to a situation and the can do attitude of staff ensures that, in most situations, we are to achieve the targets we are set, no matter how challenging they may be’.

Each study is assigned to a dedicated Patient Recruitment Project Manager who has the skills to provide leadership and encourage their team members of doctors, nurses and receptionists to work together to achieve the desired result.
