Patients and Volunteers

Taking part in a clinical research study is an important decision. The information in this section will help you understand more about the research we do and how volunteers are involved.

Clinical research aims to answer a particular health-related question. There are many different types of clinical research:

  • some will collect information from medical notes
  • others will involve taking a new medicine
  • and some will take measurements and collect samples

We run lots of different studies at the CRF so we have lots of experience with different tests and sample collection. 

Further information on our research and the Centre is available for adult volunteers and for child volunteers.
