Research Consent Application
At Warrington & Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust many of our patients take part in research studies helping to develop new treatments and cures for a wide variety of health conditions.
Your Pathway to Research is an initiative created to establish a register of people interested in taking part in health research and who agree to be contacted by members of the research team about current or future research projects.
As a first step, we are creating a register of people who would be willing for research staff to contact them to ask if they would like to take part in current or future research projects that interest them. You may have been asked by your consultant already or if you are interested, you can ask them
At this stage we’re not asking you to agree to any particular study. By using your records, researchers can check if you might be suitable for a specific research project based on different aspects of your health, for example, your symptoms or your medication. Only research staff working for Warrington and Halton NHS Foundation Trust (e.g. research nurses, midwives or Consultants) will be able to use the information in the register.
