The information requested is shown in the attached table.

The numbers of participants recruited declined in 2020/21 and 2021/22. While the exact reasons for this decline are unknown, it is likely that the reduction is related to the impact of the pandemic and a focus on recruiting participants to urgent studies related to COVID-19 in these years.
