Requests for add on studies

The NDNS Project Board will also consider applications for add-on studies to be included as part of the core survey. Examples might include an additional question in the interview, a new physical measurement or a new biological sample analyte.

The NDNS RP Project Board would consider the impact of add-ons on the core survey, in particular the burden on participants and the organisation of the survey. Applicants should consider using the NDNS Bioresource in the first instance and would need to justify why this was not suitable for the proposed work. Enquiries about add-on studies should be made through PHE Secretariat ( in the first instance.
