If you are healthy, do not have a current condition and are not being seen by an NHS doctor, you can still contribute to research.

Healthy volunteers

Our state-of-the-art clinical research facility (CRF) at Hammersmith Hospital carries out studies that include healthy volunteers as well as NHS patients. Healthy volunteers are people who are interested in taking part in, and contributing to research, but who do not have a current condition and are not being seen by an NHS doctor.

If you decide to join our healthy volunteers’ panel, we will contact you if a study comes up that you are eligible to join. There is no obligation to take part and you can remove your name from the panel at any time. If you are enrolled in a study, we will pay you for your time.

Complete this form if you would like to join the CRF healthy volunteers’ panel. Once we’ve received your completed form, we will review it and you may be invited to the CRF for screening tests. This is to ensure that potential volunteers do not have a healthcare condition they are unaware of and are truly in good health.

Screening tests may include:

  • Measuring your height, weight, blood pressure and pulse
  • Blood tests to check your liver, kidneys, thyroid and cholesterol levels (for anaemia or diabetes)
  • An electrocardiogram (ECG) to look at how healthy your heart is
  • A urine screening test
  • A breath test to measure levels of alcohol in your blood
