Help BEAT Coronavirus

Help BEAT Coronavirus is a new campaign encouraging people to take part in research to help the NHS understand the ongoing issues presented by the coronavirus pandemic.

The campaign has been developed following the incredible public response to vaccine research trials, where more than 30,000 people across Greater Manchester took part in Covid-19 research supported by the NIHR Clinical Research Network Greater Manchester.

Infection with COVID-19 is leaving people with multiple symptoms and new research is looking to understand what causes these, why some people are more susceptible to experiences ongoing health issues, as well as what support, care or treatment is currently available.

People who get involved in health research tend to have better health outcomes, as they become better at managing their own health.  Joining the research community also means that people are actively helping the NHS to improve care and treatments.

Registering means you will receive information about research opportunities along with details of how to take part. There are lots of different types of research you can take part in, including answering questionnaires, joining discussion groups, testing equipment, or taking part in trials to find new treatments.
