Please contact the Clinical Trials Pharmacist on (02) 9767 7035 for further information on fees.
CRGH CLINICAL TRIALS SERVICE FEE (CTSF)
All clinical trials that are fully sponsored by an industry sponsor will be subject to a clinical trials service fee of 7.5% (plus GST) of the total funding.
This fee will be levied on the amount of funding after payment of the Ethics Filing Fee (and pharmacy fee if paid separately). If the pharmacy fees are not separated but included in the total trial budget the service fee will apply to the total budget.
The CTSF will be administered by the Concord Hospital Finance Department and will be automatically deducted from each payment made by the sponsoring company to the investigator’s nominated cost centre for that particular trial. If exemption from payment is granted (e.g. in the case of a partially funded trial) this transfer will be reversed.
For more information (including requests for a waiver or reduction) please contact the Research Office on SLHD-ConcordEthics@health.nsw.gov.au.
