Focus group in London - 5th November. For newly diagnosed - COPD

Hi all,

I wrote a blog in September to let people know of a planned focus group at the BLF offices in London (Barbican). We currently have a couple of people signed up, but are looking for a few more if possible. It will be held on 5th November.

I recognise the location will make it impossible for the majority of people on here to attend, but we hope to be able to create more opportunities like this in the future, across the UK.

To repeat my previous blog -

The BLF are working with the Department of Health to create tools to improve communication between patients with COPD and health care professionals. As part of this, we are running a focus group in London in early November and are looking to recruit people who have recently been diagnosed with COPD but who haven't necessarily made any decisions about treatment options.

The attendees must have online access at home and use the web, and be able to view a computer screen.

The session will be one and a half hours, at the BLF office in London, and attendees will be paid £30 cash at the start of the session to cover their travel expenses.

If you're interested, please could you private message me with your name, email address and telephone number and I will ask the organiser to get in touch with you. I know the London destination will exclude many of you so my apologies for that.

Best wishes,

  • Hiya Kath,

    When I went to a regional conference I had to pay £15 to attend there were about 100 attending

    £30 for one and a half hours, just to turn up, is an offer I can't refuse

    Is it the BLF who are paying the £30, coming out of BLF funds, or funded by some other ?

    thank you Kath


  • Hi Walter,

    Thanks for your reply - can you private message me with your email address and telephone number, and I'll ask the organiser at the Department of Health to get in touch with you.

    Many thanks
