The Primary Care Clinical Trials Unit (PC-CTU) is an integral part of the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford. In 2012 the PC-CTU formalised its close working relationship with the Oxford Vaccine Group forming the Primary Care and Vaccines Collaborative Clinical Trials Unit (PCVC-CTU). The PCVC-CTU is proud to hold UK Clinical Research Collaboration fully registered Clinical Trials Unit status, in recognition of the unit's ability to coordinate multi-centre clinical trials to the highest standard.

The Unit is involved in the design, conduct and analysis of investigator led multi-centred randomised trials that are carried out in collaboration with local NHS Trusts in both primary and secondary care.

The Unit receives National Institute for Health Research CTU Support Funding. This funding has been awarded to support the unit in developing and supporting NIHR trials.
