Citizen Scientist will close at the end of October 2019 and we would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to all those who have been involved over the past seven years.
Citizen Scientist has been a great way for people to hear about the clinical trials that they could get involved in and find out more about contributing to other research activities such as advisory groups, completing surveys and taking part in focus groups. It has also helped to bring patients and research teams together, helping researchers and clinicians understand what it is like to live with a particular condition, so that research is designed ‘with’ patients, rather than ‘done’ to patients.
More people are hearing about research directly through their hospital, local clinic, GP or in the community and there are now more ways than ever that you can find out about taking part in health research.
After the end of October, we will continue to promote clinical trials and public involvement opportunities where recruitment is taking place at one of our Care Organisations in Salford, Bury & Rochdale, Oldham and North Manchester.
If you would like to find out more about the excellent research taking place across the Northern Care Alliance (NCA) NHS Group or how to get involved in research, please visit the Research & Innovation website using the link below
Anyone can get involved in health research and help the NHS to discover better treatments and medicine for you and future generations. You could contribute to improved treatments and medicines that may one day help someone you know.
