We are recruiting children (over 5 years) and adults diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in the last 6 months to the ADDRESS 2 study. The After Diagnosis Diabetes REsearch Support System aims to provide researchers with a resource of people that can be approached for cutting edge research. There are new studies that require early recruitment / treatment so to make this possible the people that have joined ADDRESS 2 would be approached directly.

Click to visit the study website
Flu is a viral infection which usually causes mild symptoms like cough and fever. Children with underlying conditions who develop flu, are at greater ‘at risk’ of becoming unwell from further infections than otherwise healthy children.
The ARCHIE study will help us find out whether giving ‘at risk’ children antibiotics within the first 5 days of developing flu will reduce the chances of them becoming more unwell or developing further infections. The ARCHIE study will also help us find out which children are most likely to benefit from antibiotics.We will be recruiting once the flu season starts again in October 2017, however, please do contact us before then to get further information and register your interest.
