Improving recruitment to clinical trials with a register of a million patients who agree to the use of their clinical records for research in the Scottish Health Research Register (SHARE). Trials [online], 12(Supplement 1), Article A115. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1186/1745-6215-12-S1-A115S. Originally presented at 2011 Clinical trials methodology conference, 4-5 October 2011, Bristol, UK.
    The UK's technical ability to identify people eligible for medical research is not yet matched by a practical capability to approach them directly to ask them to consider participation in those studies. The consequence is ...
