Research Ready Practice


 Churchside Medical Practice is working in collaboration with the Clinical Research Network: East Midlands (CRN:EM). The CRN:EM is part of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and is focused on enhancing and promoting research, ensuring that it is conducted in line with ethical procedures and for patient benefit. There is a local team working within Nottingham City and Nottingham County, facilitating research within primary care.

Join a COVID-19 Clinical Trial 



The trial aims to find treatments that reduce hospital admission and improve symptoms for people with COVID-19. You could be eligible to join if you have:

  • had these symptoms for fewer than 15 days
  • a continuous new or worsening cough
  • a high temperature
  • are aged 50 to 64 with a pre-existing illness
  • are aged 65 and above 


You may have seen, the NIHR has today publicly launched the COVID-19 vaccine research registry. This enables people to sign up to register their interest in taking part in vaccine trials into the virus.The service is available to anyone aged 18 or over, living in the UK. To register, users need to fill in some personal and contact details, and answer a series of basic health screening questions on an NHS.UK website form. The service is highly secure, with personal data and permissions held in a NHS system managed by NHS Digital. By registering through the service, users are not signing up to take part in a specific trial or study. Instead, researchers working on vaccine studies supported by the NIHR will be able to search for volunteers who have signed up to the service. Signing up is an individual choice. You can sign up to the register here. More information about the register can be found here



Following a series of focus groups earlier this year, a short online survey that seeks to help researchers understand more about potential barriers to participation in vaccine research has been devised. You can view the survey here.Researchers want to get as many responses as possible to this survey from people in the East Midlands. Whilst they want to hear from all potential respondents, they are especially keen to hear from people from minority ethnic groups.



Please find below the link below to access the online questionnaire.



UK Blood Services are collecting plasma from people over the age of 17 who have had a positive test for COVID-19. 28 days after recovery from COVID-19, you might save lives by donating plasma. To see if you can help others with COVID-19, please visit and click on the links below to take part in research.
