Healthy volunteer sign-up

Thank you for your interest in becoming a healthy volunteer. As well as patients, many of our trials and studies aim to involve ‘healthy volunteers’ – people who are interested in contributing towards research but are generally healthy or do not have the condition being investigated.

Healthy volunteers help researchers better understand a variety of health conditions as their information can be compared with people who have a specific disease or condition. Healthy volunteers can also take part in trials that help with the investigation of new medicines e.g. vaccine studies.

Please note that you must be over the age of 18 to register on the database and that registering carries no obligation to take part in any studies. If you provide your details below we will keep you updated about studies that you could potentially take part in.
