The park itself is a real treasure and would make most areas of the UK proud - this is right on Quotients doorstep.
I've just finished my first trial with Quotient Sciences and my second trial overall. I have to say that the whole process with Quotient was seamless and worked like a Swiss watch. Generally, recruitment are notorious for being a pain in the derriere making promises that do not meet experience. I'm delighted to say that this was not the case here. Recruitment is timely and effective from the first phone call, through the screening - which was both professional and a great laugh.
Those standards were continued throughout the trial.
The study itself was two study periods, so 21 nights overall. I would encourage anyone considering doing a medical trial to understand themselves; if you're going to struggle with that period of time, do a shorter one to begin with.
Our study meant that being outside was not an option in the early stages. However, when that stage was complete, the staff took us out around the park area in Ruddington which I have to say was fantastic. The park itself is a real treasure and would make most areas of the UK proud - this is right on Quotients doorstep.
The facilities were great in terms of entertainment. Quizzes, bingo and TV with DVD and a selection of books on offer along with a stable internet connection. Personally, I viewed it as an office with great productivity made better by virtue of the fact I was being paid for being there!
The food on offer was varied with a menu to choose from for meals. I particularly enjoyed the old school puddings served with custard which became a mainstay of my diet whilst there.
I intended on using the incon to fund a few living expenses whilst setting up a business. However, on returning home my wife had other ideas and we have booked a holiday to enjoy some quality family time together along with soaking up some sun. Thankfully there's some left which will do the job intended.
I cannot recommend Quotient Sciences highly enough. Whether you're a seasoned volunteer or you're considering doing a trial for the first time, this company is totally worth working with. I will be back after my washout period even though business will be booming; with the cost of living going up ad hoc lump sums of capital are not to be sniffed at.
The time spent with the staff there was great - I appreciated all the time that the volunteer liaison spent with us – it was fun – informative and its clear she loves her job!
Look forward to seeing you again!
