You can either accept or decline this offer.
What does this research mean for me?
Because they look after you, GPs are well placed to identify candidates for clinical research. For instance, it is easy for GPs to find patients with high blood pressure for a study which is looking at this condition. GPs can contact eligible patients and refer them to the researcher to find out more. The more volunteers who take part, the better the results.
I’ve received a message that I’m eligible for a clinical trial - What happens next?
You'll be given information to find out more about the trial so you can decide if you'd like to take part. If you're interested, you'll be asked to register and share your contact details and some of your health information with the researcher. The clinical trial team will then follow up with you directly to confirm if you're eligible to take part and will outline next steps.
Am I eligible?
Whether you can take part in a particular trial will be dependent on what that study is and the criteria the researchers have set out. Always read all the information given to you or speak with someone involved with running the trial to ensure that it's safe for you to volunteer. In most cases, if you are invited, you will likely be eligible for the study.
