Clinical trials specialists ready to answer your questions

POTENTIAL research volunteers are being encouraged to find out how they can contribute to developing life saving treatments. Clinical Research specialists from the Royal Liverpool University Hospital will be answering questions on clinical trials during a special Twitter chat, from 2pm to 4pm, on 20 May 2016. If you can't join the Twitter chat on the day, tweet your question in advance by using:- #AskTheExpert or @RoyalLpoolHosps. The online question and answer session is being run as part of International Clinical Trials Day, which aims to promote Clinical Trials and thank volunteers who have already taken part.

Louise Markinson, senior early phase trials scientific co-ordinator, will be leading the Twitter chat. She said:- "By volunteering for a health study, you are helping to develop and shape the future of healthcare. We want to thank the volunteers who have given up their time to help others and encourage more people to take part. Clinical Trials are essential in helping us move forward and develop lifesaving treatments and technologies for a wide range of conditions. Many of the common treatments that we are all familiar with today will have been as a result of a Clinical Trial. The NHS Constitution cites clinical research as a core part of the NHS, enabling the NHS to improve the current and future health of the population."

The clinical research team will also be manning information stands in the Royal's foyer, from 10am to 3pm.

The clinical research unit at the Royal recently became the 1st NHS facility in England to be able to carry out Clinical Trials, where new drugs are administered to humans for the 1st time, as part of tightly controlled research projects in 2013. To find out more about Clinical Research you can always ask the person treating you if you can get involved in research. You can also ask your GP, consultant, surgeon, nurse or therapist, or visit the Clinical Research website.
