We are looking for adults to register as prospective participants in healthcare research studies, by joining the "Discover" register. Whilst this advertised post does not relate to one specific study, joining Discover means that you will be contacted about all relevant research opportunities in your area when they come up. Researchers also enter their studies into Discover, and what sort of participant involvement they need. Discover serves as the marketplace bringing researchers and participant volunteers together, helping researchers find participants, and participants find opportunities. Previously, research opportunities have not been available to everyone, it was a 'postcode lottery' and very much depended on how active your doctor was in their field of study. We want to make the opportunity to contribute available to anyone.
Our research studies could be across any field, and participant involvement could range from answering surveys to having their blood tested, to testing new medical devices and phone apps, to participating in clinical trials. Recently we've approved research applications which cover Asthma, Mental Health and Breast Cancer to name a few.
You just have to be an adult registered to a GP in Brent, Ealing, Hounslow, Harrow, Hillingdon, Westminster, Kensington & Chelsea or Hammersmith & Fulham to register. It is open to both healthy people and those with health conditions.
You can register directly through our website: https://www.registerfordiscover.org.uk/join-today
