We don’t know what it’s like to live with a chronic condition or work on the front line of care provision, but our patients and healthcare professionals do. Our clients need to hear from you and we help provide a relaxed, professional and confidential space to share your views.
Meet Like-Minded People
The thought of sharing personal experiences with strangers might seem daunting, however, for many of our participants, being in the presence of like minded people is invaluable. For some, it might be the first time that they have met a patient with the same condition, or who is using the same device/medication.
Our participant’s opinions and input are essential to our research, and vital to the creation of our partners’ products. Each of our study respondents is fully reimbursed for their efforts and time across all of our research programmes, whether through cash incentives, or charitable donations.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a market research interview?
‘Interview’ is the term used for market research discussions; however, they are far from your typical formal job interview and definitely more enjoyable. During an interview, our clients might ask you to look at and handle a new medical device in development, like an inhaler, or maybe ‘walk’ your way through a website, giving your feedback on how it looks or feels. There are no right or wrong answers to any of the questions and all of your opinions are valid. Your feedback helps inform the design of healthcare products and services of the future, ensuring they are easy to use, safe, and effective for people with specific medical conditions. Please don’t be shy about sharing your views - they are a really important part of healthcare product development. You may be asked to handle a device containing medication, but never to take medication.
Where will my interview be held?
Your research interview is most likely to be held at a dedicated research venue known as a ‘viewing facility’, but sometimes we may ask permission for our client’s interviewer to visit you at home or a meeting place local to you. You might be invited to participate via telephone or an online meeting platform. The interview will usually be audio or video recorded so that it can be referred back to during analysis – but they will always get your permission first and tell you that this will happen when you are recruited.
Who do MediVoice recruit patients and healthcare professionals for?
We work with companies that develop medical devices, other healthcare products and medical services and are trying to ensure that these are the best that they can be before they are released onto the market.
What should I wear for my interview?
Our interviews have no dress code and are held in an informal setting, meaning you can wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Sometimes, we may advise you to wear trousers so that you can strap a dummy skin pad around your thigh to simulate an injection, but we will always let you know if we need you to wear something specific.
Can I tell people about my interview?
Unfortunately, you can’t tell anybody about the content of your interview. Most interviews must remain confidential and we will normally ask you to sign a confidentiality agreement before the interview starts. This is because some of the information in the interview might be commercially sensitive, or because we do not want any other participants to be influenced prior to their own interview. Your personal details also remain confidential and are never passed to anybody else (including our clients). However, we would encourage you to tell your friends/family about your experience of research in the hope that they may take part in future.
Why should HCPs take part in market research?
Healthcare market research offers Healhcare Professionals across a wide number of positions the opportunity to apply their expertise to the development of innovative treatments and medical devices. Whether through participation in an online survey, or a group discussion, those taking part in market research have the opportunity to influence the development of medical devices and therapies, changing the healthcare landscape for the better.
In addition to this, Healthcare Professionals taking part in market research enjoy the opportunity to join the discussion in the development of both new and existing medical devices and treatments, meet like-minded individuals, and earn compensation for their valuable contributions.
How can I get involved in market research?
The sign-up process for healthcare research varies according to its organiser. Typically, applicants are asked to sign up to either an agency, or individual study online, and must take a screening survey in order to determine whether or not they’re a good fit for the panel or study. This screening questionnaire may work to determine specific conditions or align respondents with studies most suited to their characteristics. Often, following this survey, applicants will be interviewed over the phone in order to verify their answers to the screening questionnaire, and to ultimately determine their profile.
If all requirements are met, the respondent may then proceed to participate in the survey - or in the case of applying for a panel, join. Panel members may be contacted in the future with relevant opportunities.
What is an HCP?
The acronym HCP, when used in medical and healthcare research, typically stands for healthcare professional, and refers to individuals in many positions in which care is provided to patients, including (but not limited to) GPs, nurses, nursing assistants, physicians, technicians, and therapists. The expertise and experience of HCPs can prove highly beneficial to medical research, assisting in developing innovative treatment options and devices, creating awareness of research and treatment options, improving clinical trial diversity, and improving enrolment - helping researchers meet quotas.
The contributions of MediVoice Recruit’s research participants help shape the future of medical devices and treatments across the globe. If you’d like to become one of our research panel members as a patient, carer, or healthcare professional, visit our take part page to find out more.
How much do medical surveys pay?
The amount of money paid for a medical survey, or medical research varies according to the research organiser or agency. Whilst some surveys may pay nothing at all for participation, others will cover travel and accommodation expenses where necessary.
MediVoice Recruit truly values the time and expertise of our respondents. For this reason, we ensure that each of our partner’s research activities is offered with fu llcompensation. The compensation offered may vary according to a number of factors, for example, the length of the survey, the speciality discussed, the outlined requirements, and other expenses. This will be outlined in the research overview prior to participation.
What are the benefits of medical surveys?
Healthcare research benefits a wide range of people when completed successfully - primarily, those affected by health conditions. The end goal of most, if not all medical research completed by MediVoice Recruit’s partners and clients is to produce or improve truly effective medical devices and treatments: the contributions of real people affected by conditions assist greatly with this. In addition to this, market research offers a range of benefits to both Healthcare Professionals and patients willing to share their experiences, knowledge, and expertise. Whether through participation in an online survey, or a group discussion, those taking part in market research have the opportunity to influence the development of medical devices and therapies, changing the healthcare landscape for the better.
Those taking part in market research enjoy the opportunity to speak out and offer their unique perspectives on life-changing conditions and treatments in a safe, non-judgemental space, meet like-minded people, contribute to the improvement of new treatments and devices, and be compensated for their time and contributions.
What is the BHBIA?
The BHBIA (British Healthcare Business Intelligence Association) provides guidelines for anyone working in the healthcare research field. This includes recruiters, researchers, HF agencies and manufacturers. These are relevant for UK-based companies regardless of whether they are working in the UK itself or overseas. The guidelines ensure that legal and ethical requirements are considered at each stage of a research project. In essence, these guidelines and requirements work to ensure all medical research is conducted ethically, and to a high set standard. MediVoice Recruit is proud to adhere to these guidelines, and further, meet all requirements.
Who can get involved in healthcare market research?
MediVoice Recruit seeks respondents identifying with a number of categories, but primarily works with: patients, and HCPs (healthcare professionals) and even healthy volunteers. Patients are often required to have specific medical conditions or be prescribed a specific treatment, whilst healthcare professionals may need to be involved in the process of treating certain conditions or prescribing or handling medical devices. HCPs may include general practitioners, physicians such as surgeons and anaesthetists, and nurses, amongst a large number of qualifying positions. Carers are often also considered to be valuable respondents to studies shaping the future of medical devices. In addition, we sometimes need the help of other healthcare stakeholders such as healthcare system procurement professionals, hospital managers or medical engineers.
