Southern Clinical Trials Group Ltd

Clinical trials for people across the top of the South Island, New Zealand 

Situated in Nelson, we serve 150,000 people across the top of the South Island. We believe that clinical research is a social good that is important for the health and wellbeing of all people.

Our community can now participate in clinical research locally. If you are interested in volunteering to take part in a clinical trial, please contact us or register below.

People taking part in clinical research often say that they enjoy and value the time spent with the research Doctor and health care team. We will support you to fully engage with your own health and wellbeing.

You may learn about new options for treatment, while receiving comprehensive care and dedicated attention from our expert team of research doctors and nurses.

The support of doctors from General Practice medical centres across the Nelson region is vital in allowing our community access to Clinical Trials. We appreciate your support – thank you for making a positive contribution to improve health outcomes through research.

We work hard to maintain the trust placed in us by sponsors, participants and our colleagues. Experience, comprehensive training and attention to detail help us deliver excellent care to participants. We have access to a full range of specialist and hospital services, allowing local people to join in the development of a wide range of new medical treatments.
