The Pharmaceutical Society NI has today, 7 December 2020, sent all pharmacists in Northern Ireland an invitation to take part in the United Kingdom Research Study into Ethnicity and COVID-19 Outcomes in Healthcare Workers (UK-REACH).
UK-REACH is an urgent public health study funded by the UK Government to help understand why people from certain ethnic minorities are more likely to have severe COVID-19.
UK-REACH is led by the University of Leicester with several other UK universities. The Pharmaceutical Society NI, along with 6 other healthcare regulators, support the study and encourage all pharmacists to consider taking part.
