Recruitment into the Health Monitoring Study ended on 31st March 2015.
We have now recruited more than 52,000 participants, approximately 45,000 of whom have had a health-screen. This exceeds the target of 40,000 screens set in 2005. The final number of participants will be announced once data-consolidation has completed.
If you have not yet received feedback from your health-screen you should expect to receive it by the end of June.
The Study now enters a phase of analysis and writing-up. We anticipate this being complete by March 2017, with results published shortly thereafter.
We are pleased that the The Home Office has committed funds and personnel to support the Study during its final two years.
We are continuing to follow up participants through NHS tracing system and via their police personnel department. You may also receive a newsletter from us during the summer, and a request to complete a follow-up questionnaire; if you do, we would be grateful if you could fill this in as it will assist with the research.Andy Heard
