COVID-19 Research and RESTART
In March 2020 the Research & Innovation team began one of their toughest challenges to date, the COVID-19 pandemic.
Already Urgent Public Health (UPH) trials were coming through that demanded our priority, and we were eager to begin the fight against this unknown disease.
First came pausing our current ‘non-essential’ research. This required an in depth study of the 74 studies open to see what could be paused without detriment to patient care. 58 studies were paused.
Over the course of the last couple of years, 14 COVID-19/UPH studies have opened to recruitment. Many of which are on-going.
As the pandemic eases, we have been able to restart our portfolio of ‘non-essential’ research, using the framework provided by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and informed by the availability and changes in each support department involved.
We are extremely proud to have contributed to the worlds fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and of the success we have had.
