CODES Results

 

Information sheet about the results for participants: HERE

 

This is a leaflet for all the people who took part in the trial outlining our results. We will hope to mail out a paper copy after the restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic are lifted sufficiently. Currently we cannot access all our materials at work. We are sorry for the delay in posting this out but this is outside our control.

 

 

There is a twitter thread discussing the results of the trial by one of the co-investigators - Professor Jon Stone HERE
