We have many research studies that you may be interested in taking part in, whether you are a patient with lung disease or a volunteer that does not have lung disease. We may not have something suitable for you immediately, but with your permission we will keep your contact details on our recruitment database so that we can contact you about future research studies.
If you are eligible for a research study we will write to you and send you a detailed participant information sheet and freepost reply slip. If you are interested in taking part all you need to do is return the reply slip in the freepost envelope and one of our team will then contact you to arrange a visit to the Unit.
Do I have to take part?
You do not have to take part in a research study. It is up to you whether or not to take part in any particular study. If you do decide to take part, you are still free to withdraw at any time and without giving a reason. This will not affect any future standard of care you receive within the NHS.
