We are participating in an exciting research study to assess the accuracy of different rapid tests for COVID-19 for patients in the community called RAPTOR-C19.

All household members aged between 18 to 49 are able to take part and you will get your standard nose/mouth COVID-19 swab as part of the study so you wouldn’t have to go to a testing centre.

The study usually involves having extra swabs and a blood test done.

You are eligible to take part if you have any of the standard COVID symptoms (fever, new persistent cough, change of taste/smell) but also if you have new shortness of breath, muscle aches, sore throat, nasal congestion or you’ve been in close contact with a person with confirmed COVID.

If you think you need testing for COVID-19 and are willing to take part, please contact our reception team (01295 256 261) who will arrange for a member of our research team to call you back.
