The follow-up programme remains suspended because of the practical difficulties of running health-screens during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, all feedback letters relating to screens that were completed prior to the suspension of follow-up have now been sent to participants. Please get in touch if you were expecting a letter but haven't yet received it.

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.

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.
