Yesterday I bought a new upright freezer that will be used to store the samples of urine and pooh that are required for the research taking place into why some patients need more frequent than others. A large box of sample containers arrived on Friday so everything is starting to take shape.
The only thing holding us up is Ethics Approval which will hopefully be granted on the 9th June. When the ethics committee gives the ok I will then be writing to various doctors surgeries asking them to identify patients who manage perfectly well on a 1mg injection of B12 every three months. This is because whilst we have plenty of volunteers who need more frequent injections that one every twelve weeks, we are struggling to get the necessary number of patients to take part in the research who need more frequent injections.
The project will be coordinated at the office end by a medical student.
