Welcome to the Health Service Journal Market Research site. On this page you can apply to join one of our new HSJ online research panels, for which you can win prizes!

Are you a health service manager interested in being paid to help with market research?

HSJ, with the help of researchers MedeConnect, is looking for managers willing to take part in online research panels to help companies and organisations find out what managers think about a variety of services, products and issues.

MedeConnect, the research arm of Doctors.net, the online doctors’ community, already has thousands of doctors on its books who now earn as much as £100 a survey for taking part in regular research.

Why is my help needed?

Increasingly, MedeConnect says its clients - which include NHS organisations and pharmaceutical companies - want managers’ views. They are now working with us to set up similar panels to survey key groups such as medical/clinical directors, commissioners and quality leads.

Clients are happy to incentivise managers to give up their valuable time online for their views, so any work you do to help us with surveys will be well compensated.

How do I get started?

If you would like to opt in to receive details of surveys, first we need to collect some data on you to authenticate your position in the NHS.

By filling in the 10 minute survey below, we’ll know whether you are the type of manager we need, and we’ll also be able to ensure we only send you surveys that are relevant and targeted to what you know.

Once signed up, you can expect to get a direct email sent to you with a link to a relevant survey.

What are the surveys like?

Surveys will vary in length from 10 minutes up to 40 minutes. We expect to survey you no more than four times a year.

How will I be compensated for my time?

Managers can expect to earn in the region of £10-15 for a 10 minute survey to around £100 for longer surveys. All surveys will be completed online.

We plan to start recruiting for the new research panels soon - check this page for updates

Please note: by filling in the survey you will automatically be registered on the HSJ website, if you are not already registered. Once we’ve processed your details, we’ll send you a log-on that you can then use to sign on and, if you choose, sign up for one or more of our newsletters.
