We know very little about the care experiences of people aged 18-24 years living with several long-term health conditions. This research project wants to explore how young people’s experiences of health and social care services and the close people in their lives support them to make the adaptions to live well. The findings may inform the future planning and delivery of health and social care services for younger people living with multiple long-term conditions
This research will be carried out by the University of Brighton and will work with three GP practices in Brighton.
The GP practices will identify people on their patient database who meet the research criteria. The practices will then contact them to get their permission to send a text with further information.
The study would like to recruit around 30 people who will be asked to take part in two telephone interviews about their experiences of their health journey. They will be given a £20 Amazon e voucher for the contribution of their time in taking part.
The information that people share will be confidential to the research team and in the final report, the data will be anonymised so individuals cannot be identified.
