"I would just like to say that the PREVAIL team are one of, if not the best study team I have worked with over the last 5 years. Not only are they lovely people but their communication and efficiency are second to none, they keep the CRN West Midlands updated every step of the way. We are looking forward to collaborating with you on future research projects! "
