Do I have to take part in a study if I register?

It will always be your choice whether you want to take part in a research study. By signing the registry you are simply registering your interest. If we match your details with a suitable study we will contact you with details of the research and what this entails. If you feel the study or the time is not right for you then you are under no obligation to proceed. We will note your wishes and contact you again in the future should any other studies match your profile.

You are free to withdraw from the registry at any point and you don’t have to provide a reason. Please contact us on 0191 282 3655, or email us at nuth.researchstudies@nhs.net to withdraw.
