Take part in a trial as a healthy volunteer

As well as patients, many of our clinical research trials and studies aim to involve ‘healthy volunteers’ – people who are interested in contributing towards research but are generally healthy or do not have the condition or disease being investigated. 

Healthy volunteers help researchers better understand a variety of health conditions as their information can be compared with people who have a specific disease or condition.

In Southampton, we have a database of healthy volunteers and send information about trials and studies they might be able to take part in. If you would like to join this database please contact the NIHR Southampton Clinical Research Facility (details below). 

You can also search for a trial or study currently recruiting healthy volunteers on the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) website.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact us by calling 0238 120 4989 or by emailing
