About payment and expenses

Yes, it doesn’t cost anything to participate in a clinical trial or become a member of the British Research Panel.

Your transport costs will often be covered.
If visits and examinations at the hospital are prolonged, you will also often receive financial compensation.

Other questions

All research projects take place in research departments in public British hospitals and clinics. Usually there are multiple locations scattered across the UK.

How long do research projects last and how many visits do I need to plan?

It varies, but most research projects last 1-2 years. At the beginning there will be 3-4 visits where participants undergo examinations. After this, visits are usually every 3 months.

At the British Research Panel, we are constantly working to find participants for research projects. You may therefore receive several questionnaires each month, if there are multiple projects relevant to you.

Participation is completely voluntary, so you can always say no to participating and just to not fill out the questionnaire.

Free membership

You can always become a member of the British Research Panel, whether you participate in a trial or not.

You will receive newsletters about the latest medical research and breakthroughs.

You will also help to empower the patient voice through participating in online surveys about patients’ needs in research. This information will then be presented in patient insight reports, benefitting the patient experience.

We will also contact you if we can offer you participation in a clinical trial or research project.
