I am proud of what we as volunteers have achieved over the years.
Well, where do I start, I have been doing studies at Quotient Sciences now for over three years and have enjoyed every one I’ve done!
I travel to Nottingham sometimes for work and looked on-line for things to do. I searched one day for paid clinical trials and found this nice place - so when I finished my project, I booked on for an induction!!
The main reason I do clinical trials is to receive some additional income – developing new medicines is also great. But as each study passes, the community grows and it’s about the experience also. It’s been great at Quotient.
Although I have done trials elsewhere – I do enjoy the atmosphere at Quotient Sciences. The buildings, the staff, it really does make a difference when looking for studies.
The inconvenience allowance helps me to buy things I couldn’t as easily with my 9-5 job, so I am grateful for the chance to receive this extra money and it helps to enjoy Christmas with my family
I am happy to tell family and friends that I participate in such research – I am proud of what we as volunteers have achieved over the years.
I like the food at Quotient, very nice. They seem to change the menu with the seasons, its homecooked and it feels that the catering team care about what they produce. The choices are great and there is always something on the menu that I would enjoy – sometimes more than one option! I do always feel very full after each meal and the new dining area in Oak House is a great place to eat – a huge tick for the new unit.
Playing games and talking with other volunteers is my main actives while in clinic!
I always plan to do my work on my tablet, but with box sets to watch and SKY movies on the TV, it’s hard to not just relax.
The Volunteer Liaison Team is always in clinic, arranging our laundry, happy to do a quiz or bingo. These activities really do make the days go faster and even when the events are done, they will sit with the volunteers and listen to feedback. They are always happy to hear other volunteers share their volunteering experiences.
While in clinic this time round, we have enjoyed great pool matches, table tennis games and quiz!
I have really enjoyed talking with guys about life. I have loved talking with nice staff in clinic and, overall, a study of over 20 nights has flown by!
We have already talked about returning in the spring and all the changes we will see in the clinic again.
See you again soon!
