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.
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. 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.
Our planned programme of research has changed in the last year. In response to the pandemic, we prioritised research to support patients admitted to NUH with COVID-19. Your can find details on our COVID-19 trials page.
Long Covid research
Our COVID-19 research is also looking at the longer-term effects for patients who are recovering, but still expriencing symptoms which are impacting on their lives. You can find details on our Long Covid trials page.
Research into other diseases
You can see some of the trials currently open and looking for people to take part on our Live Trials pages.
Please check with your Research Team about how COVID-19 may be impacting on research studies that you are taking part in.
