Congratulations to the NINJA team at the Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust, in particular Claire, Matthew, Adam, Tereze, Helen and Natalie, who met the target of 15 patients recruited into the NINJA study on the 18th June 2015.
Mid-Essex was the last site to be opened to recruitment, obtaining trust management approval on the 15th May 2015. They randomised their first patient a week later on the 22nd May, and quickly became the strongest recruiters.
We would like to say a massive thank you to the team in Mid-Essex for all of their hard work and dedication to the trial.
The race is now on for the other sites to see which site will be next to reach 15 patients. The recruitment total is now at 40, so two thirds of the way there. We hope that all sites will keep up the momentum so that the recruitment target is met within the projected time-frame.
