The Nottingham Recovery from COVID-19 Research Platform Assessment Clinic
Updated: Apr 25
We have now commenced the The Nottingham Recovery from #COVID-19 Research Platform Assessment Clinic (NoRCoRP).
The new Platform, the first to be launched by the Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre for COVID-19, is supported by funding from Research and Innovation at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, which hosts the BRC, and where dedicated clinics for patients who are recovering from COVID-19 are now taking place.
What is the purpose of the study?
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected over 13 million people worldwide. The presentation of people to hospital and their follow up symptoms is becoming more clear but the health consequences of COVID-19 in people who did not require hospitalization are far from clear.
The main objective of this research is to understand the presentation of people who have had COVID-19 and have persisting symptoms, particularly those who did not have a hospital admission initially. We also plan to create a research register to approach people for future studies. This will be done by recruiting people who have had COVID-19 and been referred into a Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust clinic for a review.
The Chief Investigator for NoRCoRP is Charlotte Bolton, Professor of Respiratory Medicine, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences at the University of Nottingham and the NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre
