To ensure the ongoing safety of our clinical trial volunteers, visitors and unit staff we have a unit COVID-19 policy, which is regularly updated. The updates review government recommendations as well as how much COVID-19 is in the community. As part of the policy you may be asked about any recent symptoms of COVID-19 before you come into the unit. We may also ask you to have the following tests:
• Lateral flow testing for COVID-19 on days that you are attending the unit. We may need evidence of this (e.g. photographic), if this is done in the 24 hours before a visit.
• PCR testing before being admitted to the unit (usually three days before).
If you are being considered for a clinical trial, we may require you to have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (e.g. in most circumstances at least two doses of COVID-19 vaccine).
