Been in hospital recently? Picker Institute survey


The Picker Institute are looking for volunteers to test a questionnaire for the Care Quality Commission (CQC), if you are interested in being involved further information is below.

 Picker is a not-for-profit health research organisation. It is looking for volunteers to help test a questionnaire about people’s experience of staying in hospital. You will need to be at least 16 years old and have spent at least one night in an NHS hospital in the last six months (excluding maternity stays).

 This would involve meeting up with a member of the research team at a location of your choice (e.g. a local café or at our office in Botley, Oxford) and to go through the questionnaire with you during an informal one-to-one chat. It will take about an hour, and you will receive a £25 'Love 2 shop' voucher as a thank you for your time.

 Please note, if Picker finds many volunteers it may not be able to interview everyone, but will always reply to your email.

 To find out more or volunteer please call the team on 01865 208133 or email lizzie.thwaites@PickerEurope.ac.uk
