The mCIA aims to accelerate the contracting process of studies funded by the medical technology industry in NHS hospitals. It is recommended by the Ministerial Medical Technology Strategy Group (MMTSG), the UK Health Services, the National Institute for Health Research, the Association of British Healthcare Industries (ABHI), the NHS Confederation, the Medical Schools Council, the UK Clinical Research Collaboration, the NHS R&D Forum and the Institute for Clinical Research. NHS and HSC PICs should be established through a subcontracting agreement with the participating NHS and HSC organisation that the ICP supports. Appropriate data processing agreements should be concluded using the corresponding model agreement: NHS organisations in England, in particular those responsible for signing agreements for NHS research sites, are invited to comment. The demember administrations of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are carrying out a specific revision of the document in order to review their proposals. The version provided is the result of the work carried out by the ABPI; at that time, there was no legal audit by other agencies. The HRA is seeking advice from NHS organisations in England and says they may want to seek their own legal advice before responding. Before a clinical trial can begin, it is important to reach an agreement between the parties to define the respective responsibilities and obligations. In the UK, where the clinical trial is being conducted in the NHS, several model agreements, including MCTAs, have been developed as a standard contract accepted by both the pharmaceutical industry and NHS bodies. The aim is to simplify and thus accelerate the launch of studies on NHS patients in NHS hospitals. The models are intended for use without modification, with the exception of the information specific to the test. In practice, MCTAs are considered standard models and it is difficult for the industry to propose changes without significantly increasing costs. „This collaborative approach is an important step forward and supports our ongoing commitment to creating an effective, supportive and supportive environment for industry-sponsored studies.“ „Scotland has been at the centre of negotiations for the development of the new Clinical Trial Agreement (MCTA) model.
The establishment of a single agreement in the UK streamlines the research environment across the UK and improves our international competitiveness. Where a proposal is submitted on the basis of the model agreement, but which involves amendments, the sponsor must explain the reasons for the proposal. The clinical trial agreement (mCTA) and Clinical Research Organisation model Clinical Trial Agreement (CRO-mCTA) model models revised in February 2018 are designed to be used without modification for industry-sponsored studies of NHS/HSC patients in hospitals across the UK Health Service. . . .
