If you’ve ever taken a medicine, had a scan, received talking therapy or cancer screening – that’s all been made possible because of research. People from all ages and backgrounds, with and without medical conditions, are needed to take part.

The Hicks Group is proud to announce that we are now part of the Clinical Research Network Eastern Primary Care. This means we are working with the National Institute for Health Research and anyone registered with the practice may be invited to participate in a research project if they are suitable.

There’s lots of different kinds of projects you could be involved with - from completing a questionnaire, joining a focus group, having a blood test or taking a new medication. You will be sent full details to help you decide whether you wish to enrol. You will never be signed up to a study without your full consent and you can change your mind at any time.

Psychological Impact of Covid-19 - closed 30 September 2021

Researchers from a collaboration group, led by Southern Health, are asking people to complete a short questionnaire to help better understand how the coronavirus and changing restrictions are affecting us all and the impact on our day to day lifestyle. The study is linked to the Medical Research Council global health research programme led by the Portsmouth-Brawijaya Centre for Global Health, Population, and Policy, University of Portsmouth and hopes to find out what is helpful for people during this time and also what may be causing some people to be affected more than others in terms of their wellbeing.

Can you spare 15 minutes to help? Click on the link to the questionnaire for more information.
