SHARE is a new initiative to establish a register of people living in Scotland willing to provide secure access to their health records. This access can be incredibly useful when it comes to developing new treatments and cures for heart disease and other conditions. GoSHARE (Genetics of SHARE) is a sub-study of SHARE, where we are also asking permission to store and use blood that remains after routine clinical testing. No blood sampling is required specifically for this.

The GoSHARE register will allow research into the relationship between genes and disease, and responses to treatment. This is an important growing area of research as the activity of the gene variations could be used to develop new, more effective drug treatments for individuals. Carrying out genetic research can also help us to understand why people get different diseases and why some people respond differently to a particular medicine. If you sign up, you might be invited to take part in a research study in the future but it would be up to you at the time to decide if you wanted to take part.

It only takes a minute to join the SHARE register, but together we can make a real difference to Scotland’s future health.
