Just to let you know, we have obtained our first Site approval at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital Trust (RLBUHT) on the 18th October 2012, with the second site approval being The Walton Centre NHS foundation.
The first patient to be recruited into ENCEPH-UK cohort studies occurred on the evening of the 18th October from the Royal (RLBUHT)!
Well in fact site agreements are being sent to R&D departments as we speak!
Very soon your sites should be up and running and we look forward to your recruitment of patients with suspected encephalitis into ENCEPH-UK.
Paediatric recruitment should follow suit shortly, the final preparations are underway.
