Sheffield University - Seeking volunteers for a research study on valuing health

I am a PhD student at the University of Sheffield. We are looking to interview members of the general public for a study about their opinions on the value of different aspects of health. This study should help researchers better understand the value that people place on health, which allows the NHS to make better decisions about what services to provide.

Participants would take part in a group meeting with 5 to 7 other members of the general public. They will be asked to individually complete a questionnaire comparing different health conditions. They will then be asked to discuss their thoughts about the task with other participants in the group. The meeting should last about two hours in total, and refreshments will be provided. The meetings will be conducted at Regent Court near West Street at the University of Sheffield. The ethics committee of the School of Health and Related Research at the University of Sheffield has approved this study.

Participants will be reimbursed a £15 gift voucher for their time.

If you are interested in taking part in the study, or if you have any questions you can contact Milad Karimi at or at 0114 222 6382.
