Some you of may know that we paused recruitment back in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Last week, we were given the official go-ahead from our sponsor, The University of Manchester, to re-start recruitment. This was the last in a long line of approvals from the NHS sites and our funder*, who assessed and agreed that we met the NIHR framework for re-starting the recruitment of studies paused due to COVID-19. We’re looking forward to, once again, offering people the opportunity to take part in the CARMS project. More information about who we are recruiting and how to get involved can be found on the main page of our website, here.
*We also gained approvals from Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust, and our funder, the EME programme, an MRC and NIHR partnership.
