Call out for study participants – Help in COVID Study

During COVID-19 lockdowns in England, people have been asked to stay at home, with rapid changes in healthcare access. A&E departments and GP surgeries have seen significantly fewer people, leading to concerns that people are not seeking help when needed. Late diagnoses of serious conditions, like heart attacks and cancer, may harm people’s health and well-being.

Researchers at UEA are conducting a new study to better understand help-seeking for acute or new potentially serious symptoms during COVID-19, with future findings looking to contribute to improving healthcare in pandemics.

The research team are now recruiting adults to take part in the study and are looking for people who have sought help for a new, serious symptom or were diagnosed with a serious condition during COVID-19. Research conversations to discuss experiences with participants will be conducted via video call or telephone, and participants are welcome to include a support person or carer. The research team are particularly interested in speaking to people who may have delayed or had difficulty seeking help or who are older adults.

What will you do to make a difference?

Two men from Norfolk who found themselves with cancer and having to travel for treatment, vowed local people would have access to the best treatment and support … and in 1980 the Big C Appeal was formed.
