HSRU offer a 24-hour, seven day telephone randomisation service and/or randomisation over the Web. Multiple randomisation algorithms are supported including minimisation and random permuted blocks. The service can also handle drug supply chain and unblinding.

Randomisation reports can be sent automatically by email or ftp and can be provided either at each randomisation, daily, weekly or monthly to specified study personnel.

Telephone calls are made to the service using a freephone number which is connected to 8 telephone lines. For international calls there is a standard UK telephone number.

The cost of the service depends on how long the service is required and the sample size.  The randomisation request form can be found here.
