There are always some risks – both from the medicines that you might take and the tests that are performed. Some of the medicines we test are still at the very early stages of development and not much information is known about them. You may have side effects which are mild or possibly unpleasant or serious. Other medicines might have been on the market for years and they are well understood, but there may still be the risk of new side effects. However, your safety is our highest priority at all times and you will be carefully monitored by trained staff. If the study doctor thinks that it is not a good idea for you to take part or continue in the study you will be withdrawn and referred to either your GP or a specialist centre for further medical care.
