PARROT Patient Information

Does my child have to take part?

No, taking part is voluntary. It is up to you to decide whether you would like your child to take part.

deciding not to participate

If you decide not to take part then your child will receive the usual treatment your hospital offers. Their doctor can provide you with more information on this.

If you choose for your child to take part you can also choose to stop at any time without giving a reason. 

The decision you make on whether your child takes part or not will not affect the standard of care your child receives now or in the future. 

What happens if I change my mind?

If at any point, you decide you would like your child to stop taking part in the trial then your child will receive the treatment and the follow up usually offered by their hospital.

If you do decide to stop, we will ask you if you would like your child:

  • to continue to complete the follow up visits for the trial or
  • stop taking part with no more trial visits.

We will use any trial information collected up until the time you stop your child taking part. However, the trial team may be required by the regulatory organisations to continue to collect some limited information about any side effects your child may have as a result of taking part in this trial.
