Coronavirus UK: COVID-19 clinical trial volunteers – how to participate in medical trials


“First, we need the doctors in charge of their care to sign up for the clinical trial,” said Van Tam.

“Then it’s up to the doctor to approach the patient and ask if they want to participate. It’s a very informed written consent process for this to happen.

“But, the direct answer is yes. We need people to participate in clinical trials, and they do.

“For the recovery trial, yesterday’s figure told me that there were just over 700 patients in the trial. Today I walk to 10 Downing Street, and the number is 926. It is truly fantastic work for both clinicians, and by the patients. ”
