Gone are the days that medical research were just you being a guinea pig taking new medication and the researchers seeing what the side effects are.
Medical research is so much more. Medical research is essential to develop new treatments and therapies for accross the board so patients in the UK the best possible care and treatment.
Clinical trials are conducted to test whether a new medical intervention is effective, safe and better than standard care. These trails often rely on the participation of volunteer's with the certain medical condition.
Working with the NIHR as a Patient Research Ambassador it is my job to promote trials to patients of different medical conditions. To view what a PRA does click here.
If you are interested in being part of a clinical trial you should speak to your GP, Consultant or visit the UK Clinical Trials Gateway. Here you can search for a clinical trial by condition (e.g Cancer or Stroke) and the area which it is based.
The UK Clinical Trials Gateway can help make informed choices about clinical trials. They offer useful Guidance on how trials work and help connect you to researchers running trials you may be interested in. To find out more about trials click here:
