filling in a survey form

A new study assessing the care received by people with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder is looking to recruit participants in Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.

The ‘Implementing NICE guidelines on bipolar disorder’ study is looking at compliance with NICE guidelines and service user views about their care.

The study is looking for people with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder to complete a service user survey and/or give permission for researchers to access their medical care records to assess the care they have received. People can choose if they wish to take part in either one or both parts of the study.

The study is running in Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire and the study are hoping to recruit 200 from each area.

Matthew and Louise, who are already signed up as volunteers for the study, joined BBC Radio Nottingham host Mark Dennison on his mid-morning show on Monday 22nd October, to talk more about living with a bipolar diagnosis and how they would encourage other people to get involved. You can listen again to their interview (available online until Nov 20th):
