Studies in follow up

There are multiple studies currently in follow up.

IDEAL: The IDEAL research project asks people with Dementia and their families about their lives, and how they feel. It will find out, via questionnaire, what aspects of people lives help or hinder their ability to live well with Dementia.

If you have experiences changed in memory or other thinking abilities and have a family member or close friends who would be interested in taking part in this study please contact Carol Long or on 01642 283501.

Scimitar +: The SCIMITAR+ trial will examine whether a bespoke smoking cessation (BCS) intervention works better than existing smoking cessation services in helping people with severe mental illness to quit smoking. Participants will be randomised to either the bespoke trial intervention or smoking cessation treatment as usual. For more information regarding the trial please contact

E-compared: The E-compared study will conduct comparative effectiveness research in IAPT settings on the effectiveness of internet-based treatment for depression in comparison with standard care.  Participants allocated in the intervention arm will receive 11 weekly therapy sessions overall: 6 face to face and 5 internet based.
