Field Scope International a market research company is currently looking to invite Rheumatoid Arthritis and Ankylosing Spondylitis patients to a market research discussion on the topic of patient support programmes.

The purpose of the research is to gain a better understanding of your experiences with patient support programmes. We want to understand what adds value to these support programmes as well as understand what impact this has on the management of your condition.

During the course of this research you may be observed by healthcare professionals and clients so they can gain first hand insight into what really needs to be done to better support you and what improvements can be made to these patient support programmes.

Please note: not everybody will be viewed by healthcare professionals. You will fall into different groups/times when we have established your diagnosis. We will contact you to inform you of the time once we have looked at your initial screening questions.

Location: Central Liverpool

Date: Wednesday 13th April, 2016

Time: Dependent on your diagnosis, there are different time slots. You will be informed over the phone the specific time.
