Volunteer to help find a vaccine for Covid 19

Join the national effort and sign up for the NHS COVID-19 vaccine research registry . Be part of the fightback against the virus by volunteering to be contacted by researchers to take part in COVID-19 vaccine research.


There are a number of vaccines being identified, but only large-sca studies can give researchers the information needed about how effective they are.

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is working with the NHS and aims to recruit as many people as possible onto the registry, which will allow people to be put in touch with the vaccine studies in the coming months.

Researchers are looking for people from all backgrounds, ages and parts of the UK - including both people with or without existing health conditions - to take part in vaccine studies, to make sure that any vaccines developed will work for everyone.

The service is available to anyone aged 18 or over, living in the UK. There is no obligation to join in any study, if you are contacted. But by taking part, you could help researchers find vaccines to protect us all more quickly - which in turn could help the NHS and save lives.

Sign up today!

Traffic Monitoring

0n 31 October 2017 a study of Traffic travelling eastward from Brighton by East Sussex Traffic Monitoring Unit, was commissioned by the Parish Council.

The results tell us that at peak times the queue from Brighton towards Rottingdean stretches beyond Greenways roundabout past the speed camera towards Roedean holding on average, in the busy period, 342 vehicles. Such lengthy queues impact on more than just the congestion on the A259 but also affects the flow in the High Street and has a knock on impact in the AQMA. The Parish Council continues to work with BHCC to seek ways to improve matters. Data can be viewed here
