Centre for Clinical Research and Effective Practice
The Centre for Clinical Research and effective practice (CCRep) was established in 2001 to administer commercial drug trials on behalf of Counties Manukau Health (CM Health). CCRep is an independent legal entity operating as a Charitable Trust. CM Health has representation on the Board of Trustees, but there is an independent Chairman and majority of independent trustees. CCRep occupies premises on the Ground Floor of the Esme Green Building at Middlemore hospital. CCRep signs Clinical Trial Agreements as the institution and assumes legal and financial risk. CCRep carries extensive public liability insurance cover and indemnifies CM Health.
