From time to time we undertake clinical research in the ENT department, so you may be asked to take part in a clinical trial.

All of our trials are thoroughly regulated by national standards and the NHS Hospital Ethics Committee.

You don't have to participate in any clinical trial if you don't want to.

It is important to know that this will not affect the speed or quality of your treatment.
