Patient information

To help further our understanding of the causes of arthritis, we are always looking for volunteers to assist us with our research.

With over 2000 patients on our records, their contribution to our research has helped to improve treatment, prevention and recovery for others with arthritic complaints.

We are looking for people who have:

  • healthy joints or;
  • been treated for injury or;
  • have arthritis.

There are two ways in which you can to take part in our research studies by either:

We work to a strict ethical policy. All of our patient recruitment is supported by the National Institute for Social Care and Health Research Clinical Research Centre (NISCHR-CRC) which is funded by the Welsh Assembly Government to improve people's health and wellbeing through research.

We are currently recruiting at Local Orthopaedic and Trauma Clinics in Cardiff.

For information on these clinics or if you are being treated elsewhere and would like to learn more about our studies, please contact us.
