TestEd Covid

Can I change my mind about participating in TestEd?

You can withdraw from the study at any time and do not have to give a reason for doing so.

If you decide to withdraw from the study, there are two options for doing so.

  1. “No further contact” This means you will no longer be contacted by the study team. However, permission would still be in place to use the information and sample which you provided.
  2. “No further use” In addition to “No further contact” this means that your data or samples could no longer be used in any future research, although it would not be possible to remove your information or sample from the current research.

You can contact the TestEd study team via tested@ed.ac.uk if you wish to withdraw.
