How to get referred


  • Your specialist doctor may offer you recruitment when you are seeing them or they may write to you saying that you are eligible and ask if you are interested.  They will then send a referral to the study team letting them know of your interest.
  • The study team will contact you and will give you more detailed information then offer you an appointment.
  • At the appointment the research nurse will go through the appropriate consent form in detail and answer any questions you have about the study.
  • You will have blood sample taken. The blood sample will be used to analyse your genetic code and hopefully identify the cause of your disease.
