Paid Clinical Trials

Volunteers in the UK can expect to be paid for most clinical trials. The amount of remuneration offered differs from clinic to clinic and can extend from around £500 to £4000. Most longer paid clinical trials offer approximately £3200. Our free service finds all paid clinical trials in the UK and will make sure the level of payment is what you require. The more free time you can spare will always mean bigger payments for time spent. Volunteers should be prepared to take time off their usual daily duties and commit to the required schedule of the clinical trial. For more information and how much you could be paid for a trial please contact us and we’ll get back to you asap.


Most clinics will pay within 21 days of the trial end. Completion of all the appointments and over night stays are a must to receive your payment and would recommend making sure you can attend 100% of appointments well in advance. Getting paid for clinical trials is no easy option for making extra money and a high level of commitment is required to successfully complete the whole trial.
