Clinical/Site FAQs

  • Can we enrol patients in other studies alongside FUTURE-GB?
    • Yes. The intervention for FUTURE-GB is in the peri-operative period, and providing the potential study does not interfere with this, it is fine to co-enrol.

We would caution researchers to look at the outcome measures for potential co-enrolment, as some studies have a many Quality of Life Questionnaires which may create extra burden on a participant.


  • What is the age-range for participation in FUTURE-GB?
    • 18 – 70 years inclusive. So if a participant is in their 70th year, they can enrol right up to the day of their 71st birthday.
  • What are the time windows for the follow ups in REDCap?
