Covid-19 Research Studies at Hillingdon Hospital
Hillingdon Research & Development Team are participating in a number of national COVID-19 research studies:
ISARIC/WHO Clinical Characterisation Protocol for Severe Emerging Infections in the UK (CCP-UK)
ISARIC are an international consortium (a network of networks) who investigate novel pathogens causing severe acute respiratory illness (SARI) and emerging infections of public health importance. In the UK this observational study is led by the Universities of Liverpool and Oxford.
The rapid analysis of this data feeds directly to DHSC, PHE and HPS. It has already informed capacity planning for key resources.

Randomisation evaluation of COVID-19 therapy (RECOVERY)
This is the world’s largest randomised clinical trial of potential coronavirus treatments. RECOVERY is led by University of Oxford researchers. It aims to compare several different treatments that may be useful for patients with COVID-19.
By offering our patients an opportunity to enrol into the research trial they may have access to treatments not currently available on the NHS while at the same time helping to answer vital research questions.
