R is for Recruitment - your first port of call when considering clinical trials! Your friendly recruitment team can tell you all about clinical trials and help you to decide if they're right for you. A recruiter will take details about your medical history from childhood and your current lifestyle to help match you to a suitable trial, so allow 20 mins for your recruitment call.

O is for Outpatient - every clinical trial involves some outpatient visits to our clinic in Leeds. We like to see how you're getting along after the study, and to check whether the study drug has left your system. You will receive a travel payment every time you make the journey to Leeds.

Illuminated letter - Beginning your Plate

G is for Gilberts - Gilbert's Syndrome is harmless but common- around 1 in 10 people have it. Gilberts affects the body's ability to control a substance called bilirubin, and can lead to bouts of jaundice, but many people have Gilbert's without even knowing it! Before a clinical trial, we will always ask if you have Gilbert's syndrome, as a build up of bilirubin could be mistaken for a side-effect. For some of our paid clinical trials, people with Gilberts will be excluded.

L is for Leftovers - or lack thereof! To ensure that our research is accurate, we ask our volunteers to clear their plate at every meal. Not such a bad thing when the food is home cooked, nutritionally balanced and free!

V is for Volunteer! Where else could you earn from £100 a day for being a Volunteer? Your time is precious, and your help is very valuable because without volunteers, there would be no new treatments - it's as simple as that!

M is for Myths- there are many surrounding clinical trials, which might make you nervous about taking part. Here are a few facts - we've never cut off anyone's toes. We've never paid anyone a huge sum of money to have their heart stopped. We never test anything which we don't believe to be beneficial to health and wellbeing.
