We are also actively involved in NHS research work through the Primary Care Research Network. As a result, you may from time to time be asked if you would consent to participate in a health-related study. There is absolutely no compulsion for you to do this and opting out will never affect your ongoing treatment here. The research is nationally regulated with the utmost respect for confidentiality. Both Drs Maryam Husain and Simon Atkins are involved in this work.
