What other people say about us

"Professional and time-efficient processes"

During home visits the Illingworth nurse performed venous blood sampling and processing alongside patient assessments. All logistics for the visits were handled by the Illingworth Research Nursing Project Manager. This included arranging couriers, transport of the nurse to site and specific nurse training. Furthermore, quality checking and source documents were also considered and were sent through to sponsor in a timely manner.

"Home visits eliminate all inconveniences"

I have been having regular home visits for a few months now and I have found that having these visits at my residence is so much more convenient for myself. I feel much more comfortable in my home setting. It is also beneficial financially and time-wise: travelling to a hospital requires my time, money, petrol and paying for over-inflated parking. So this is a cost-saver, not to mention the time it takes to drive, park and wait for a nurse to attend to you. In short, home visits eliminate all these inconveniences.

Rare Disease Patient

"Tailored support to meet our needs"

The Research Nurses used their experience and knowledge to help us avoid any pitfalls managing patients in their own environment, in this case at home. This is a very specialised task and they tailored their support to meet our needs as well as those of the study protocol and endpoints. In my opinion, we benefited greatly from this experience and their professional, yet comfortable working relationship.

"Saved us time, money and stress"

Since our specialist clinic is 2.5 hours by car or 1.5 hours by train and public transport, it is an incredible relief for us to have a specialist Research Nurse come to our home for a short visit. This saved us time, money and stress for our 7-year-old son. Above all, it was much more pleasant to have the procedure done in a homely, relaxed atmosphere. A big plus for us is the empathetic and positive nature of the nurse. Our Research Nurse made the whole process a nice visit, like a friend of the house popping by. Without compromising professionalism!
