£20 High Street Voucher to share your views of IBS healthcare services in the North East and Cumbria


I'm still hoping to recruit another 8 people to join the focus group I'm holding on Wednesday 29th April, 6.00-7.30pm at: Northumbria University Campus. 5 mins walk from Haymarket metro, Newcastle.

I'm running a research project to learn more about how people with IBS in the North East and Cumbria view local health and care services.

I'm particularly interested in hearing your experiences from first contacting a healthcare professional to discuss your symptoms, through to diagnosis and ongoing management. What services have been good? What could be improved?

I'll be building a picture of what would make an “ideal IBS pathway” and I really need to know what you would like from the North East and Cumbria health care system.

If you have an IBS diagnosis, and would like to be part of a small focus group, please contact Joanne Smithson, the Project Manger on Joanne.smithson@northumbria.ac.uk.

As a participant, we will refund any travel expenses you have incurred and you will receive a £20 high street voucher as thanks for your participation.

I live in Canada and can not really help, but the project sounds interesting. Good Luck!
