The benefits of participating in a clinical trial at ACS

  • Advancing the development of new medicines
  • Meeting new people and making new friends
  • Staying over in our comfortable facilities, catching up on work or study
  • Being entertained (light yoga etc), provided delicious meals, a laundry service and access to free WIFI
  • Being reimbursed for your time

We can keep you posted with new studies that may be suitable for you.

 “I have participated in several medical trials at ACS over the past few years and it has always been a pleasure, the staff at ACS are friendly and helpful. Before every trial, everything is explained clearly and all questions are answered. The facilities are great whereby you get free wifi and you can play computer games or a game of Pool. Not only do you get to help in medical science, but you also have time to relax with a book or watching movies. I always feel well-rested after an in-patient stay plus you get reimbursed for your time. I look forward to doing another trial in the future.”

“I had been attending ACS every three weeks for three and a half years. During his time the staff were most professional, warm and caring.

My last day there was quite sad due to the friendly staff and wonderful care I had received.”

“I have participated in 5 studies so far – I like that I am contributing to the development of new cures that could potentially save or improve the quality of life for others. ACS is so welcoming and relaxing.  The facilities, staff and meals are amazing and I always enjoy staying there. I am looking forward to my next one!”

“The reason I like ACS is the staff are bubbly, friendly, fun and approachable to be around while on a study.
The best thing about being involved in a trial is that you are helping others in need and how to cure people of diseases.
Of course the food is tasty too and you get to have some R & R while being on a study.”

 “I have been participating in clinical trials for about 5 years. What I really like most about ACS is the friendly staff and the laid back environment. Also, you get to meet alot of cool people too. What is good about being involved in a trial is that you get to help people out there with serious illnesses. I always enjoy my visits to ACS and I encourage anyone to participate in a trial.”

“I enjoy taking part in these studies as they are a way of giving back and the research that is done can help countless other people. The staff are amazing and very informative. The whole process to me is fascinating. To think that a cure for something has been developed and that I was a part of that is amazing.”

“As regards my experience with the RACE study at Auckland Clinical studies, I found that it was excellent. Any initial misgivings i may have had were soon dispelled by the clear information I was given both verbally and in written form. Everyone was supportive and caring so that one felt safe throughout, and I was never put under any kind of pressure. Any questions I had were promptly answered and small problems solved. At no time did I feel worried or concerned. Despite it being a commitment for several months, it was good to know that there was some flexibility about dates and times of appointments.

The environment was welcoming and comfortable, although it was very obviously a medical ward! The medical care was thorough and I found that very reassuring, speaking as a cancer survivor. Being involved in a clinical trial was very interesting – I was fascinated by the timing of everything, even having to eat our meals to the minute.

I also welcomed the opportunity to meet other women who had travelled the same path as me, even though we were very different people.

I would like to thank all the nurses and doctors and you too, Margaret, for making the experience a positive one for me”
