The UK study to identify the inherited cause of high blood
I am writing
to ask for your help with our investigation into the inherited
cause of high blood pressure. With ethical approval we have
been searching for families with two healthy affected/unaffected
parents and a child with high blood pressure. The following
patient in your practice is a member of a family we are studying
and has consented to help.
wondered since this patient has given their consent and we
believe them to be hypertensive, whether you or your practice
nurse could help us by completing the attached form and sending
it back to us in the enclosed pre-paid envelope.
If this subject takes part in the study, we will be able to
provide you with the following results: 24 hour Ambulatory
blood pressure, 24 hour urine, blood haematology/biochemistry,
electrocardiogram and height/weight results. We will not be
offering any advice or alter any treatment as a consequence
of results we receive. We will provide you with the results
and leave any treatment modifications to you. All information
the patient and you supply will remain confidential.
The patient is aware that we have contacted you and are waiting
to hear from you. We very much hope you will assist us with
this study by completing the enclosed questionnaire. Should
you wish to know more about the study, please do not hesitate
in calling one of the research nurses working in your area
- they are; Jane Pheby, Jo Kent, Janine Pembroke and Sandy
Colville-Stewart on 0207 882 3421 (3425/3424).
With thanks for your help.
