If not, there are other options




Our highly specialised clinical facility allows for intensive monitoring for narrow therapeutic margin (higher risk) therapies and our non hospital allocated beds allow for overnight and participant studies to be conducted with ease, providing greater flexibility to sponsors and clinicians.

PARC is a 10 bed clinical facility capable of conducting clinical trials across all stages of development, fully equipped with all of the latest medical technology to ensure the safety of our healthy volunteers and patients.

We are able to provide privately screened beds for clinical assessment, as well as shared entertainment and meeting room facilities. This provides an environment to allow close and intensive monitoring of participants involved in complex studies such as first in human dosing studies and less complex outpatient based studies.
