PRINCIPLE Trial calling GPs and primary care professionals

PRINCIPLE, a national NIHR Urgent Public Health Prioritised trial, is evaluating possible treatments for COVID-19 in primary care.

The trial is endorsed by the CMOs of all four nations, who have asked for doctors to make every effort to enrol patients. PRINCIPLE aims to find out whether early treatment in the community speeds recovery and reduces the need for hospital admission for those with COVID-like-Illness. The trial urgently needs more of those who are still contracting the disease to be given the opportunity to participate. This study is now available to every eligible person throughout the UK, as patients can now also be recruited centrally.
