    CaPP3 Site Initiation Visit Belfast September 2015

    The CaPP3 team has visited all the UK Regional Genetics Centres, during 2015, to prepare the sites to open for recruitment. The first visit was to Aberdeen on a wild stormy day in January finishing in Belfast on a warm sunny autumn day in September 2015.

    There are now 24 centres open to recruitment: Newcastle, Aberdeen, Sheffield, Nottingham, St Mark's, Swansea, Exeter, Birmingham, Manchester, St George's, Cambridge, Cardiff, Dundee, Royal Marsden Hospital, Southampton, Leeds, Guy's, GOSH, Oxford, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Leicester and Rhyl. If you live in one of these areas and are interested in taking part in the CaPP3 study please contact your Genetics Service. We expect the remaining 2 UK centres to open to recruitment in the very near future.

    We are delighted to report that we reached 300 recruits this week (27th October 2015).

    Recruitment is currently at 371 (25th November 2015).
