Acting as a data processor, uMed provides services to your GP practice. This includes contacting you on their behalf to offer you the opportunity to be part of studies that may be relevant to you.
uMed will seek consent on behalf of your GP practice to share relevant information with members of the team who are conducting the study. By giving consent, ‘signing’ ‘Yes’ on the screening consent question, you are consenting uMed to transfer this information from your GP to the Study Team.
Your consent is required before uMed passes your details to the Study. To provide informed consent you must understand the purpose of the Study (i.e. what questions they are seeking about), to whom the information will be sent, what the potential implications could be (i.e. an understanding that further information may be required from your GP, hospital records, etc) and the consent should be given freely.
You can withdraw consent by ‘signing’ ‘I do not consent’ on the screening consent question. You will also have the opportunity to withdraw consent when contacted by the Study or at any point during the life duration of the Study or after the Study is ended.
