On June 1st, 65 delegates from all of the UK sites involved in the fourth UK Meningococcal Carriage Study met at the Oxford Martin School for a study wrap-up meeting. The eleven sites involved were: Oxford, Bristol, Glasgow, Cardiff, Stockport, Wigan, Preston, Manchester, Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells, London and Plymouth.
The meeting was a chance for all the sites and their teams to meet up and discuss the study from their site’s perspective and also discuss future plans for the project. In total, across all the sites 21,806 students aged 15-19 years of age were recruited for swabbing. This was a major achievement for the consortium. Thanks to everyone involved for your hard work and dedication!!
