Relief Study Participant Review – IH
Ian was “blown away” by the care he received while participating in the RELIEF study, describing his EMERGE nurses as his “sunshine girls”. He said taking part in research was the best decision he had made.
Read on for more from Ian.
“It was my first time taking part in Research as I was taken out to the RIE by paramedics when they came at 2am. It seemed to have taken ¾ of an hour to arrive to hospital as I had broken ribs so I was in agony with the ambulance seeming to find every pot hole.”
“Once at the RIE, I was in A&E and eventually put in the Major Trauma ward where Nicky visited me quite often and would always brighten my day.”
“While in the A&E though, It felt like I was on my own half to three-quarters of my time there and with lots of activity going on it felt ages. During one of these times on my own, Fiona (McCurrach) and Nicky (Freeman) approached me and it made such a difference. I have dubbed them “my sunshine girls” as they were happy company, very attendant and came to visit often. Taking part in their research project with their care made all the difference in my stay at the RIE.”
