Supporting public health COVID-19 research
As one of the most research active Trusts in England, Guy’s and St Thomas’ and Evelina London Children’s Hospital is at the heart of the national effort to develop diagnostics and treatments for COVID-19. All COVID-19 related research has to be nationally approved by the Chief Medical Officer.
Research will play a key part in halting the pandemic through identification of treatments and a vaccine for COVID-19, therefore patients being treated for COVID, and/or their families may be approached regarding participation in studies.
The national studies which the Trust is participating in are listed on our COVID-19 studies page.
Coronavirus advice to participants in non COVID-19 studies
The safety and wellbeing of our research participants is key. If you have an appointment with the team they will be in touch to advise if this will go ahead. Where appropriate, our research teams will contact you to conduct research follow up by telephone.

Our research includes studies of new medicines and devices (known as clinical trials) as well of studies that observe (watch) how children grow and learn.
