Highest number of Participant in Research Experience Surveys (PRES) completed
A huge thank you to all of our partner organisations who gave study participants an opportunity to tell us about their experiences of taking part in research.
Over 3150 adults completed the 2019/20 Participant in Research Experience Survey (PRES) and so did 231 children. This is the highest number of responses we have received in a year, and is the highest number of returns from any local Clinical Research Network.
It is important that we understand the research participant experience. One anonymous participant said: “Researchers were always friendly and helpful and told how the research was helping.”
Another said: “Everyone seemed to be happy and interested that I am taking part.”
Well done to colleagues within the NHS and from non NHS settings who worked hard to give the survey to their participants.
This year’s survey is now closed and the online survey for 2020/21 will open on 1 May 2020.
