LHP Industry Gateway Office – Streamlining Commercial Research within Partner Trusts


Industry Gateway Office


In 2014 the Prime Minister set out plans to put the “UK at the forefront of the global race in science and innovation”. Liverpool Health Partners response was to establish the Industry Gateway Office with a remit to promote and develop commercial clinical research excellence across Liverpool City Region and wider North West England.

Liverpool City Region has a Life Science sector that currently contributes £1.7 billion per annum to our economy. We are home to many life science sector leaders such as AstraZeneca, Novartis, Bristol Myers Squibb and Eli Lilly. The region also boasts the most specialist hospitals in the UK outside London and with a new £500m University Teaching Hospital to open soon, our commercial clinical research portfolio is expanding.

The Industry Gateway Office will be at the heart of this growth.


What is LHP Industry Gateway Office?

The Industry Gateway Office is a ‘one stop shop’ for life science companies who wish to access all our world class research expertise through one door.

We aim to work closely with both industry and our Trust Partners to streamline processes throughout the study lifecycle to deliver commercial research to time and target. By raising the visibility of the Partner Trusts we will promote commercial research within the Liverpool city region and ultimately improve the health and wealth of the region.

Core Objectives

The Industry Gateway Office has 3 core objectives:

  • Increase commercial research collaborations with life science companies
  • Maximise clinical trial recruitment opportunity for patients  
  • Drive efficiencies to deliver clinical trials to ‘time and recruitment target’
