We are looking for two members of the public to act as representatives on a study that seeks to understand why some men and women do not attend colonoscopy after receiving an 'abnormal' bowel cancer screening result.
In particular, we are looking for men and women of South Asian or Southern / Eastern European ethnicity.
You don't need to have taken part in screening or colonoscopy yourself, but you do need to be between the ages of 60 and 74 years. As a representative, you will simply be asked to meet with the researchers (online or in person at St Mark's Hospital) for a couple of hours once every three months.
During the meetings, the researchers will ask you for your thoughts and opinions on their research. This will help them to ensure they do the best research possible.
As a token of their appreciation, the researchers at University College London are offering to pay members of the public £50 for every meeting they attend (up to £200 a year).
If you are interested, please contact Dr Robert Kerrison, lead researcher, in one of the following ways:
