About Us

Priment's mission is to advance the quality, range and design of clinical trials in primary care, mental health and community settings in order to improve the health of the population.

Priment Clinical Trials Unit is a partnership between three UCL departments:

Priment conducts high quality randomised trials and related studies in mental health and primary care. The unit has a particular focus on mental health and behavioural change interventions.

Priment collaborates with internal and external researchers to develop and/or evaluate complex interventions in primary care, psychiatric and community settings.

Priment is a UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC) registered clinical trials unit. UKCRC registration recognises the CTU's strengths in conducting major trials and other large, well-designed studies.

Priment receives National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) CTU support funding. This funding has been awarded to support the unit in developing and supporting NIHR trials. 

The running of Priment is managed by the members of the Steering Group.
