MORRISVILLE, N.C., April 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Illingworth Research Group, a Syneos Health® company, has been recognized with a 2021 Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade. Illingworth Research Group™ is a leading global provider of clinical research home health services.

Illingworth is one of only 205 UK-based organizations to be recognized with the prestigious Queen’s Award. With this acknowledgement, Illingworth Research becomes the first organization to be awarded the highly acclaimed industry SCRIP Award as Best Specialist Provider, and a Queens Award for Enterprise: International Trade, in the same year.  

“We are all incredibly proud to be honored with this prestigious Award for our sustained achievements and consistent growth,” said John Illingworth, Chairman, Illingworth Research Group. “The passion and dedication of our employees continues to ensure we can deliver solutions to support patients wanting to participate in clinical research, whatever their background or geography, while reducing patient burden. This Award from The Queen will enable Illingworth to continue to deliver on its mission of making clinical research accessible for all.” 

Illingworth Research was established in 1998 to provide clinical research services, diversifying into patient-centric clinical research solutions including Mobile Research Nursing, Patient Concierge and Medical Imaging. Employing over 200 people across the globe, complemented by 1200 Mobile Research Nurses, the organization was acquired in December 2020 by Syneos Health, a global biopharmaceutical solutions organization. Syneos Health brings together 25,000 clinical and commercial minds, in more than 110 countries, to speed the development and delivery of much needed therapies to market.
