Clinical trials

Practice involvement with clinical trials

The practice on occasions may be involved with clinical trials.

Any involvement will always be voluntary
Any individual patient involvement in a clinical trial is always voluntary, meaning you can end your involvement at any point of the trial without having to give any reasons. This will result in no disadvantages to you.

Why join a clinical trial?

As the NHS suggests
“Clinical trials help doctors understand how to treat a particular illness. It may benefit you, or others like you, in the future. If you take part in a clinical trial, you may be one of the first people to benefit from a new treatment. But there’s also a chance that the new treatment turns out to be no better, or worse, than the standard treatment.” Clinical trials – NHS
