Is the FLASH Study right for me?

Taking part in clinical research requires careful thought. Before you decide whether to participate in this study, make sure that you understand any potential risks involved. The study team will be able to explain the study to you in full, and give you some written information about it. There is no guarantee that you will benefit from taking part in this study. 

As well as talking to the study team, you might want to talk to your partner, family, or regular doctor to help you decide whether to participate in the FLASH Study.

Also remember, clinical research studies are voluntary. You are free to leave at any time and for any reason, with no penalty to you.

You will be supported by your study doctor throughout the study – please ask questions if you need more information.
