Healthcare Opinions specialise in finding the right people to participate in medical related market research and usability studies. This involves finding people who are medical professionals – providing care at all levels – or people who are receiving care or treatment for a range of conditions.
Since 2008 we have conducted research in a variety of therapy areas from eczema to multiple sclerosis, in addition to Parkinson’s disease, COPD and many more. We regularly gain insight and expertise from professionals from across the healthcare sector with research studies for GP’s, consultants, nurses of all specialisms, pharmacists and healthcare support workers.
Healthcare Opinions was established by Julie Fuller in 2008 to focus on medical market research while her other companies, Research Opinions and Acumen Fieldwork, continued to organise general market research on consumer products and services. Before establishing herself as one of the most recognisable and trusted names in the market research industry, Julie worked as a nurse and is well placed to understand the intricacies of healthcare specific market research.
In addition to running her companies, Julie also sits on the boards of both the AQR and the MRS Company Partners – two regulatory organisations within the market research industry; ensuring that we’re always at the forefront of any industry innovations.

All of our research is offered with financial incentives and rewards – whether you’re taking part in group discussions, interviews or filling in our online surveys, they’re a great way to earn some extra money for your time and opinions.
