Coronavirus update: raising awareness of clinical trials

The UK government is now urging doctors and medical professionals across the country to recommend patients for ongoing drug trials. Action has been taken after NHS England’s medical director, Stephen Powis, warned the government, in a letter delivered earlier this week, that life-saving knowledge of the disease can only be gathered via large-scale medical research. Powis states: ‘As yet, there are no proven treatments for COVID-19. We need to gather reliable evidence through clinical trials.’


As measures are now being taken across the UK to increase awareness of clinical research, we thought it would be best to reflect on how we as a company can help medical researchers everywhere in raising awareness. In addition to our partnership with Lazarus, that will help promote new and essential symptom-checker software, we’ve had a search through our archives for the best articles that outline everything you need to know about clinical research and how you, regardless of experience, can get involved. Check out our top picks below.
