We have received an invitation from a company called Healthcare Fieldwork, based just outside Cambridge, UK. They recruit people to take part in paid market research interviews. One of their clients, a pharmaceutical company, would like to gain a better understanding about the experiences and journey of people who have been diagnosed with Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine tumours (GEP-NETs) and Carcinoid Syndrome in order to identify ways to support them with information and support material. This online research will take place in June 2020 and will take the form of small online discussion forum with other patients. The participants will be paid £150 on completion of the online forum and a 30-minute pre-task as a thank you for the their time and opinions. This research is not intended to be promotional in any way. There will be no attempt to sell, promote or influence participants thinking. It is purely to identify ways our client can support them with information material. If you would like to volunteer to take part please contact Susan Hughes on 01223 855066, or email at Susan@healthcarefieldwork.com.
