Cardiff School of Medicine student research projects

Dr Muirhead says:

“Thank you all so much for volunteering and getting in touch with your questions. I’m trying to get back to you all individually but as a person with ME myself this is proving a little challenging.

I just wanted to say thank you so much to everyone who has volunteered for both the Family Quality of Life Questionnaire study and the Role of the GP telephone study. The medical students and tutors at Cardiff University have been very impressed by the level of response.

Impact of ME/CFS on family – more volunteers needed

There are still opportunities to volunteer for the study using questionnaires to measure the impact of ME/CFS on the quality of life of individuals and their family members.

You don’t have to live in Wales to take part. Find out more

We will be sending out questionnaire packs until the end of the week (23rd March) so if you are interested, please e-mail me (as research supervisor) at

If you have considered volunteering for this study but decided not to, please let Dr Muirhead or Jan know why as this information could be informative for the student.

Role of the GP

The student running the project on the role of the GP in care of ME/CFS has written:

“We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has been in contact to share their experiences and volunteer for my project. We have been overwhelmed by the amazing response and are looking forward to working with volunteers over the next few weeks.

As this is only a small, six-week project we will have to restrict the number of participants and have now ​reached the number required. The outcome of this project will be shared via the WAMES website.

Please keep an eye out on the WAMES website if you are interested in being involved in similar student research projects as Dr Muirhead hopes to work with more students in the future.”
