Yesterday, 7th October, we received the ‘green light” to start recruitment for a new study. The study team moved quickly. Being familiar with the patients who are currently on the ward, they knew that someone fitted all the criteria needed to take part.

The patient was given the information sheet to read and given time to consider the study. They were happy to help with the research – thinking it may help others as well as themselves.

Without people agreeing to take part in research, no progress could ever be made with our treatment of heart disease. We are so grateful to those that do, and love getting to know them during the study period.

Remember, you can change your mind at any time if it turns out the study isn’t what you want to do. We do understand, and will never try to persuade you otherwise. Recruitment continues for this study and we hope it is a huge success.
