Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Ethics approval has been granted by the UK National Research Ethics Service, South Yorkshire Research Ethics Committee. Informed consent will be obtained following a multi-stage process.

Following this, informed consent will be taken in person by a study researcher prior to the baseline eligibility and assessment interview. Potential participants will receive full information about the study in advance of the interview, and at the point of consent there will be further opportunity to discuss the study and for the participant to raise any questions. Researchers will be fully trained in taking informed consent, including assessment of capacity to consent where appropriate. Consent will be taken only from individuals with capacity to make an informed decision on their participation.
