Whitehall II 

(also known as the Stress and Health Study)

Study update: Temporary Suspension of Stress and Health Study (Whitehall II) Clinics.


Due to the increasing risk of infection with Covid-19 (Corona virus) we are temporarily halting the Stress and Health Study clinics, from Monday 16th March until, provisionally, Monday 20th April. 

The decision to close our clinic is in line with measures introduced by the NHS for hospital outpatient clinics. We will contact you to rearrange your appointment once the government health authorities confirm that the infection risk is reduced  and the public health guidance indicates when the clinic can re-open. 

We apologise for any inconvenience this situation may cause you.If you have any questions, please contact us on our Freephone number 0800 068 1562 or by email shstudy@ucl.ac.uk or by post at our address above.
