From: Dr Sara Demain, Research Lead, University of Southampton.
WERE you aware that approximately 15 million people in the UK are currently living with a long-term health condition? Having a long-term health condition doesn’t just affect the person; it also makes a significant impact to their family and friends.
To help inform health policy, The Health Foundation is funding research at the University of Southampton, in collaboration with the Universities of Leeds and London, to explore the experiences of people affected by one of three prevalent long-term conditions; bowel cancer, diabetes and stroke.
This research will take place in Southampton, London and Leeds and will involve speaking to those affected by one of the conditions.
We would like to hear from people who have had a diagnosis of bowel cancer, diabetes or stroke, and also the relatives of someone affected by these conditions.
Those who are interested in taking part should contact the project’s research fellows, Emma Boger or Jaimie Ellis at the University of Southampton on Freephone number 0800 0285 116, or via email e.j.boger@ soton.ac.uk or J.Ellis@ soton.ac.uk.
