If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) – a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste (anosmia) – the advice is to stay at home for 10 days. All members of this household should remain at home for 14 days.

If you think you have symptoms, please do not attend your hospital appointment until you are advised it is safe to do so. Please contact us to rearrange your appointment, or to re-organise treatment and tests.

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.

Ask us about research

Our aim is to offer every patient the opportunity to take part in clinical research at our hospitals. You can ask the team caring for you about research taking place now.

In 2019/20 over 14,000 people took part in clinical trials here, enabling us to test new treatments, technology and therapies which will help to improve healthcare for thousands of people.

Live trials

Trials into treatments for COVID-19 

We are currently running a number of trials to support the national and international clinical research programmes into potential treatments and vaccines for COVID-19. Find out more about this research on our COVID-19 research pages.

NUH live research trials

Our planned programme of research in 2020 has changed. In response to the pandemic, we have prioritising research to support patients admitted to NUH with COVID-19. Our COVID-19 research will continue, including looking at the longer-term effects for patients who are recovering and increasing our understanding of the virus.

In order to ensure the safety of patients and staff, only those trials which are providing essential treatment, or which are COVID-19 research trials, are currently taking place. 

We are now in the process of planning to Restart Research where it is safe to do so in priority health conditions/diseases. As we begin to Restart Research at NUH, we will update details of clinical trials that are reopening or that will be starting soon on these pages.

Please also ask your clinical team about research trials that you may be able to take part in here.

Your appointments

To protect patients and staff, and to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we are carrying out as many appointments as possible over the phone or by video.

If you are attending NUH for research appointments, please ensure you follow the current guidelines for patients and visitors to NUH.
