Take part in a trial

Take part in a trial

At NUH we run hundreds of clinical trials every year. We are only able to do this because our patients, carers and families volunteer to take part in and support our research.

How to take part in a trial at NUH

Our aim is to offer every patient the opportunity to take part in clinical research at our hospitals. Here's how you can take part:

  • Ask your clinical team about research you may be able to take part in
  • Search for trials happening now on the Live Trials pages of this website
  • Ask a member of the Research & Innovation team. Our research staff wear "red for research" uniforms and they work in every part of our hospitals
  • Ask one of our Research Volunteers for more information. You'll see them around our hospitals wearing their "red for research" uniforms and they will be only to happy to help you.
