International Clinical Trials Day

Each year, teams from all over the BRC and R&D come together to mark International Clinical Trials Day. Held on or around the 20th June, this event recognises the day in 1747 that James Lind, a ship’s surgeon aboard the HMS Salisbury, began his pioneering clinical trial into the causes of scurvy. We have a story about the 2019 events on our news page.

Frequently Asked Questions about data

We worked with a patient group to develop a new page for the Guy’s and St Thomas’ website to answer any questions that patients may have about how their data is used for research. This was then adapted to incorporate the text provided by the Health Research Authority.

Research awareness survey

Our  Clinical Research Facility (CRF) took part in a national project to investigate awareness amongst our patients, visitors and non-research staff about the research we carry out. The project was set up by the UK CRF Network to help to build both a national and local picture of awareness of research. This will then be used to find new ways of increasing awareness and engagement with the public.

The project produced the below poster available for you to download.
