Long Covid Research
Are you interested in getting involved in research into Long Covid?
There are a number of different ways to get involved. If you are interested in taking part in research studies as a participant - I will try to keep this page up to date with studies that are currently recruiting.
Researchers are also always looking for people to get involved in the set up of research projects - as part of Patient Participation Groups - this gives you the option to influence and really help the research project to be as good as it can be.
Have a listen to Jane Ormerod & Chris White from Long Covid Scotland chat about research involvement - how they have been getting involved and also the huge benefits to both parties of patients being involved in research.
If you are in Scotland, get in touch with Long Covid Scotland to get involved in their research group.
If you are in the rest of the UK, join the Facebook Research Involvement Group or get in touch via the Long Covid Support website
Elsewhere in the world? Get in touch and I'll direct you!
