- acting as a first point of contact for potential and recruited patients;

- entering patients into the databases;

- taking responsibility for supporting the monitoring of safety of the study participants and reporting events as required by protocol;

- liaising with multidisciplinary colleagues to ensure the smooth running of the trials, compliance with the protocols and relevant legislation.
