Plea for patients to come forward to participate in clinical trials

PRINCIPAL is a clinical study from the University of Oxford to find COVID-19 treatments to aid recovery at home and
reduce the need for positive COVID-19 patients to attend hospital.    

OneNorwich who represent 21 GP Practices in Norwich are encouraging patients to come forward for the study. To qualify, patients must meet the following criteria:

 Be 18 years and over

  • Had a positive COVID-19 test result within the last 14 days
  • Have had COVID-19 like symptoms

PRINCIPLE is still open to those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine. Patients can self-refer into the trial using the website or by telephoning 0800 138 0880. They can also be referred by their GP.

 Practice Staff

Practice staff are also encouraged to support this trial by helping to identify any patients that may be eligible to take part and informing them of the opportunity.

Further information for healthcare professionals and study promotion materials can be found on the PRINCIPLE TRIAL website.
