Patient identification and recruitment
Discover-NOW can support you to identify and recruit to studies. Our Health Research Register comprises thousands of patients who have consented to be contacted about taking part in research studies relevant to them. Further, using our specialised, GDPR-compliant FARSITE tool, we can identify and
invite people to participate in research through their GP. Our highly skilled team can assist you in rapidly defining the protocols for your study to ensure only those patients eligible for your study are invited to take part.
