Latest news

From March 16th 2020, the Airwave follow-up programme has been suspended due to the latest government advice concerning COVID-19. If you would like to be added to a waiting list to be contacted when clinics re-open, please e-mail our Airwave resource team.

You may notice that our website now looks slightly different from before. In fact, it's been rebuilt entirely to bring us into line with new regulations on the use of cookies, and to upgrade the content-management-system, Drupal.

We're pleased to be publishing our second newsletter, which brings everyone up to date with progress on the Study as of November 2019.

We emailed details of the newsletter to all members of the cohort for whom we have a working email address; others will have received the newsletter in the post.

We are occasionally asked by participants to send copies of their health-screening feedback letter from when they joined the cohort. Unfortunately, because these letters are now in the deep archive, we are unable to do this.

Due to changes in funding arrangements, as of 1st January 2018 members of the Airwave Health Monitoring Study and Tissue Bank will no longer be members of the NIHR BioResource.  Consenting participants will remain part of the Imperial BioResource.

We are pleased to announce that the Airwave Study has become a member cohort within Dementias Platform UK (DPUK).  DPUK is the public-private research initiative aimed at identifying the causes of dementia and accelerating the development of new treatments.

The aim of the Airwave Health Monitoring Study is to investigate whether there are any long-term health testing of Airwave use on police personnel.

UPDATE 29th April: We are currently unable to send feedback letters to participants because the Airwave Tissue Bank project team team have been redeployed to COVID-19 research projects. We'll update with news on feedback letters as soon as possible.

UPDATE 16th March: the Airwave follow-up programme has been suspended due to the latest government advice concerning COVID-19. If you would like to be added to a waiting list to be contacted when clinics re-open, please e-mail our Airwave resource team at [email protected].

We are now running health-screening clinics at sites around Great Britain. If you had an Airwave Study health-screen prior to 2016 and have either recently received an invitation letter for a re-screen, or think you might live or work near to an existing screening centre, please book your health screening appointment here.
