Abstract

Recruitment into clinical trials from primary care may be difficult. Our aim was to use the Secure Anonymised Information Linkage (SAIL) databank to identify potential participants for two factitious trials. We identified 284 and 711 participants for each study (population=250,086). This method appears promising in identifying trial participants.
