COVID-19 in relation to research and recruitment at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS FT

Updated 17 Mar 2020

The Trust will be suspending the approval of all new studies as well as recruitment to current studies except where recruitment and follow-up visits can be done during routine/ standard-of-care hospital visits or remotely.  Note that this restriction does not apply to COVID-19 studies.

Patients already recruited into studies or in follow up, may be able to continue on a study protocol but remote visits may be considered if possible (e.g. telephone call rather than face-to-face).

All monitoring and audit visits to the Trust will be suspended. This is to protect staff, study participants, patients and member of the public from infection. This is also to release research delivery staff to support our clinical staff.

If you are a current research participant or a research sponsor and you have any questions or concerns in relation to the above, please contact your research nurse contact or the .
