Imperial College Airwave Research Project
Imperial College Airwave research project - Your participation is Vital!
Very shortly all Hampshire officers and staff will shortly receive a letter which will offer you a free, comprehensive and confidential screening, including heart check (ECG) and blood tests, this is worth around Â£300 if done privately. A screening could identify early indications of a health problem, or just give you the peace of mind that all is well. You will also receive a results sheet regarding your medical which will not diagnose any conditions but will give an indication if you need to consult your doctor. The Research Project looks at the medium to long term health effects of the Airwave radio system. Research up to now shows that the radio system is completely safe to use. This is a National Research project and the only one of its type in the world. It is funded by the Government as opposed to the tax payer. Many other Forces in England and Wales have been taking part in this project over the last few years.
You don't have to be a user of the Airwave Radio to take part it is open to everyone and is also completely confidential.The screenings are part of the Airwave Health Monitoring Study undertaken by Imperial College London. Clinics across Hampshire will be providing the screenings that will take up to 90 minutes to complete. Travelling time will be provided by the Force, however travel is at your own cost.
It is vital that as many officers and staff sign up to this as possible as the bigger cohort of volunteers means a more accurate analysis. To start the ball rolling in Hampshire we require a minimum sign up of at least 500 volunteers as the nurses who run the clinics have to be sourced and paid a salary.
It is hoped that clinics will be set up in the North of the County, Winchester, Netley and the IOW.
