Join Dementia Research is a new service that helps people to take part in dementia research studies.
It aims to accelerate the pace of dementia research by allowing people with and without dementia to register their interest in studies, helping researchers find the right participants at the right time.
The Join Dementia Research website offers a secure and easy way for someone to register their interest, discover studies that interest them, and ultimately connect with researchers to take part in their studies.
Anyone aged 18 years or over can sign up themselves, or on behalf of someone else, either by registering online or by contacting the helplines of Alzheimer’s Research UK (0300 111 5 111) and Alzheimer’s Society (0300 222 1122).
Join Dementia Research is a collaboration between the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), Alzheimer’s Research UK, Alzheimer’s Society, Alzheimer Scotland and UCL Partners, and has been funded by the Department of Health and NHS England.
Dr Callum Chivers (F2) has now left and Dr Hafiz Jaidi will be taking his place for the next 4 months. He will begin seeing patients from the January.
