If you are eligible to take part in the study you will be invited to visit your local Synexus Centre for a health check. During this complementary health check you will have a face-to-face chat with one of Synexus’ nurses and ask any questions. This also gives you the opportunity to view the modern, state-of-the-art facilities.
At this point you are given some time to go home and consider participating in the study. Synexus recommends you discuss the opportunity with your friends and family. Assuming you are happy to proceed you will then be given the opportunity to come back to the Centre to meet one of the doctors and undergo a more thorough health check which is likely to include blood and urine tests as well as an ECG.
The length of a clinical study can vary dramatically from a few weeks to a few days. Everything will be explained at the initial visit and Synexus is always available to answer any additional questions. You are free, at any time to withdraw from a study without prejudicing your future medical care. Reimbursable expenses, such as travel will be covered, however it is deemed unethical to ‘pay’ you for your time and participation.
Synexus advocates keeping your GP up to date with any tests you undergo at Synexus and believe that it is important to work in partnership with your GP. Working in this way improves the chances of being able to find relief from your symptoms.
