[I'm re-posting for any recent members. Thank you again to all those who have already responded and taken part.]

Were you diagnosed with lung cancer within the last 12 months? Have your say about your experiences in the PEARL study - a research programme led by UCL and funded by Cancer Research UK.

We're interested in people's experienced of being diagnosed, and particularly people who are from Black, Asian and other minority backgrounds living in the UK. We would particularly like to talk to:

1. People who have never smoked

2. People who are current smokers

If you take part, you would have a chat with a friendly researcher on the phone, and you would be paid for your time. That's it!

If you're interested in taking part, please do comment below or email me (Georgia Black) on or Sandra Van Os ( Thanks!

I fit your criteria, could you please reply with more details about your trial. Thanks

Hi there Stopgap123.

Thanks for getting in touch. It's a study where we interview people about their experiences of being diagnosed. It's a one-off chat on the phone, and normally takes about 45-60 minutes of your time. Please do email me on the address in the original post and I can send you some more information.

Many thanks,


Hi Georgia Black, I was diagnosed with lung cancer in February this year, I would like to take part in the study.
