Feedback from researchers we've supported
It was fantastic to have Parkinson's UK share our research project. We have already hit our recruitment target for phase one of our physical activity programme trial 8 months early and have put people interested on a waiting list for the new year. We also had interest from local Parkinson's groups who want to take part. Your help has been amazing.
Dr Gill Barry, Associate Professor in Clinical Biomechanics at Northumbria University.
I want to thank Parkinson's UK for sharing my research with their Research Support Network and on their Take Part Hub. As a result, I quickly received over and above the required responses to my online questionnaire. I would recommend anyone who is looking for research participants for their study to get in touch with Parkinson's UK.
Aseel Aburub, a researcher at Keele University.
Thank you for your tremendous help. Your team has been absolutely brilliant. I'm very grateful for the quick response especially when we came back to you for guidance regarding increasing diversity in our study and for an extra push to complete our recruitment. Keep up the good work, you are making our studies happen! A big thank you from all of the OxQUIP team in Oxford.
