Pharmacy services: Focus group

Researchers based at The University of Manchester approached us to help recruit people to a discussion group to explore the expectations and experiences of using local pharmacy services for people living with long-term conditions.

Using our Help Beat Diabetes and Respiratory Disease campaigns, we invited potential volunteers who had specified they were interested in joining discussion/focus groups

Ali Hindi (Researcher, The University of Manchester) said:

“I was amazed by the number of volunteers who were interested and enthusiastic about taking part in research.  Everyone who went on to participate offered information and useful experiences and insight.  It was a valuable experience all round, and I got to meet and work with such helpful people.

I am very grateful to the Research for the Future team who helped and supported my recruitment, and to the participants, without whom this research wouldn’t have been possible.”
