11. Do I have to take part? - No!

 

It is up to you. You will be given information about the study to read and keep.


If you decide to take part, you may be asked to sign a form saying that the study was explained to you and that you agree to take part; this is called an assent form.


Your parents or guardians will also be asked to sign a form to give their permission for you to take part; this is called a consent form.


You can change your mind and stop taking part at any time without giving us a reason. This will not affect the care you get in any way and no one will be upset with you.
