How you can help
We know that many people find it hard to understand health information, such as medicine leaflets. The people who take part in research at Luto provide us with important feedback about health information. They also help us to see if the information is easy to use and understand. We use this feedback to improve the information we write.
Luto always want new people to take part in our projects – anyone aged over 18 can register to take part. We need people from Leeds, and the surrounding areas.
Tell your friends about us and be sure to keep an eye out for regular updates in the news section of our website.
It’s easy to take part
1. Get in touch
Call us on 0113 487 2500 to speak to one of our friendly team or fill in our contact form on the right-hand side of this page and we will call you back.
2. Register to take part
When you register we will give you some more information about taking part. We will also ask you a few simple questions about your medical history and any medicines you take. This is to make sure we can match you to the right project.
3. Take part
If you are a good match for a project, we will invite you to take part in a session which lasts about 45 minutes. You will be asked to look through some information about a medicine, medical product or treatment. We’ll then ask you some questions about the information to see if it is easy to use and understand.
Frequently asked questions
Where will the session take place?
Most of our sessions take place at our offices in Leeds (please see the map below for details) on a one-to-one basis. On some occasions, we may conduct projects outside of our Leeds office if we are looking for specific groups of participants. If you think members of your group or club would be interested in taking part fill in our contact form and we will call you back.
Will I get paid?
You will be paid a small amount towards your travel costs and for your time.
What happens to my personal data?
Any details you provide will remain confidential and in line with the Data Protection Act 1998. We never pass on your details to other people outside of Luto.
What if I don’t get matched to a project?
If we cannot match you to a project straight away, we may have one that suits you in the near future.
How often can I take part?
You are able to take part in a project every six months. However, we may not be able to match you to another project as soon as you are available to take part again.
Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in taking part in another project. If we can’t match you to a project straight away, we may have one that suits you in the near future.
