UK SAH Volunteers wanted for Medical Market Research

Recommended Posts

Behind the Gray has been approached by Oracle Fieldwork (details below) who are looking for volunteers  from the UK who've suffered an Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Haemorhage.  They are specifically looking to speak to patients aged between 18 - 70 who are 3 - 12 months into their recovery. However, if you fall slightly outside the upper range of 12 months post SAH (18 months max),  you may still be considered. 


Interview to take place last 2 weeks of May 2018. 


Oracle Fieldwork are an independent market research agency working within the codes of conduct of the Market Research Society (MRS) and British Healthcare Business Intelligence Association (BHBIA) and complying with Data Protection legislation. The anonymity of anyone taking part in this study is guaranteed and the research is not intended to influence views or opinions in any way.


If you're interested in taking part or have any questions please contact Paul directly via email or phone rather than asking questions on the forum, as the Admin Team at Behind the Gray aren't involved with the research and therefore we won't be able to answer any questions or concerns that you may have.


Many thanks.




My name is Paul Socha and I work at Oracle Fieldwork, a medical market research agency specialised in pharmaceutical and medical market research.


Project Background

We are working with our client who is interested in providing validation of the use of two questionnaires in aSAH patients.


The objectives of the research activity are to:

Assess how relevant the content of two patient outcome questionnaires is to aSAH patients and

Understand what treatment outcomes are important to aSAH patients


We hope that this research will allow to understand how aspects of these questionnaires could be more personally relevant to aSAH patients and for use in further aSAH treatment evaluation.


We are specifically looking to speak to 25 patients based in the UK that have had an aSAH in the past 3 to 12 months and are between the ages of 18 and 70.


We are asking you to take part in a 90 minute interview in the last two weeks of May. We expect that it won’t take the full 90 minutes but want to give you enough time to look through and comment on both of the questionnaires (which will be based on an iPad) as well as time to discuss the treatment outcomes that are important to you.


If you live less than 2 hours of travel from London, the interviews can be held face-to-face, in a location that is convenient for you, for example in your home. If you live elsewhere in the UK, interviews will be conducted via video-call. If you think you will require assistance with operating an iPad during the interview, you are welcome to bring your partner/spouse/relative/friend for any assistance.


You will receive an honorarium of £70 (remote interviews) or £80 (face to face interviews) for taking part. This will be in the form of a bank transfer or Amazon voucher – whichever you prefer. There will also be a donation made to your support group for taking part in this study.


If you are interested in taking part or have any questions regarding the study then please do not hesitate to contact me at Oracle Fieldwork on 0161 284 8889 or paul@oraclefieldwork.com


Kindest regards,
