Covid-19 Thank you

Thank you

The world faces an unprecedented challenge … to tackle the spread of COVID-19 and it is vital we harness our research capabilities to the fullest extent to limit the outbreak and protect life.”

Professor Whitty


It has been a massive team effort to deliver Covid-19 research and to support those on other trials.



The research nurses who have worked tirelessly to run vital Covid research trials and keep patients on existing trials safe.

Janet Brown, Caroline Dixon, Claire Gabriel, Chris Hough, Katrina Humphries, Carolyn Mansfield, Katherine Pagett, Sally Smith, Rachel Smith, Lesley Sumner.


The administrators who are the backbone of research - we wouldn’t have succeeded without you.

Carole Bennion, Sheron Clarke, Brenda Collins, Adele Hough, Amaryl Jones, Cherie Nevitt.


The Principle Investigators who took responsibility for Covid trials and ensured their success: Diego Maseda, Richard Lowsby, Duncan Fullerton, Elijah Matovu, Shanthi Pinto, Caroline Dixon and all other PIs supporting paused studies.


The Pharmacy Team who moved mountains to enable patients to access trial treatments:   Taya Jones, Andy Ritchings and Karen Thomas and all the pharmacists & technicians who have dealt with difficult requests at odd hours.


Everyone on the Transfusion Team who helped to offer patients Convalescent Plasma on the RECOVERY study and everyone on the Pathology and Staff Testing Teams who have created new systems so we can offer the SIREN study to our staff.


To the IT team, particularly Peter Moore who developed our SIREN systems from scratch.


To UHNM (teamwork even extends across Trusts!) who processed SIREN samples and provided pharmacy support so we could offer the full range of trial treatments to our patients.


Thanks to all the people not otherwise named.  The doctors who have taken on extra training to offer the RECOVERY and RECOVERY RS trials to patients.  The nurses on the wards who have had to administer new treatments and new procedures, often at short notice.  The Clinical Audit team who helped with the huge amount of data entry involved in the ISARIC CCP-UK trial.  Finance staff, medical records, medical resourcing team, secretaries, porters, cleaners, estates and everyone else who has helped during the pandemic.


Most importantly, thanks to all the patients and staff who have kindly agreed to take part in research.  It is only because they gifted their consent that we have been able to discover new information and treatments and thus changed practice worldwide.
