Information for participants

If you have consented to participate in the SC IL-1RA in SAH study, you should have received an information sheet explaining everything that will happen to you during the trial.

If you have lost your information sheet, you can ask your doctor or nurse for another one, or download a copy of the Participant Information Sheet (PDF).

If you have any specific questions or concerns at any point during your participation, you can ask a member of your healthcare team or call the research team. Contact details can be found on the research team page.

It is important that you remember that you can withdraw from this study at any point, without having to give a reason, and that this will not affect your care in any way.
