Patients may be contacted from time to time about taking part in a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR www.nihr.ac.uk ) study. If you are asked about taking part in NIHR research, someone in the care team looking after you will look at your health records to see whether you are eligible to take part before asking you whether you are interested or sending you a letter on behalf of the researcher.
You are free to choose whether or not to take part in any research study you are approached about.
For more details about how your information may be used in research click here (www.hra.nhs.uk/information-about-patients ).
If you are interested in research, please ask your care team about any research opportunities that may be suitable for you.
