Do I upload recruitment activity in Edge or CPMS?

Unless your study is an EXCEPTION, all your recruitment activity should be uploaded into Edge only – there should be no duplication of data entry.

If you are working on an exception study, you should already be aware and know where and to whom you should be sending recruitment activity. If you need assistance with whom you should be sending recruitment activity to for an exception study, please email:

Not sure if your study is an exception study? Please click on this spreadsheet (updated 09.12.19), which lists the studies currently open at Cambridge University Hospitals and whether their recruitment activity needs to be uploaded to Edge (LPMS) or CPMS.

This spreadsheet is not accurate by status of study, but raw data only to indicate the method that recruitment activity needs to be uploaded (EDGE or CPMS). This list will be updated monthly.

If the study you are looking for does not appear on the list, or you need further assistance, please email


  • You should upload recruitment activity for portfolio studies to Edge
  • Unless your study is listed as an exception (see spreadsheet)
  • Do NOT duplicate data by entering it into both Edge and CPMS
