QPS Rules

When you participate in an examination at our clinic, you must adhere to a number of rules.

Rules inspection

We are regularly confronted with volunteers who do not comply with inspection agreements. That is why we apply the following rule:
If you are unable to comply with an inspection agreement, we expect you to cancel this agreement in time. You can only do this by e-mail! If we do not receive a cancellation by e-mail from you in time, we will not automatically plan a new appointment with you. We will then place you on the reserve list. If you do not comply with your appointment twice or cancel by e-mail, we will no longer approach you for participation in drug research at QPS.
