“The reason I like ACS is the staff are bubbly, friendly, fun and approachable to be around while on a study.
The best thing about being involved in a trial is that you are helping others in need and how to cure people of diseases.
Of course the food is tasty too and you get to have some R & R while being on a study.”

“I have been participating in clinical trials for about 5 years. What I really like most about ACS is the friendly staff and the laid back environment. Also, you get to meet alot of cool people too. What is good about being involved in a trial is that you get to help people out there with serious illnesses. I always enjoy my visits to ACS and I encourage anyone to participate in a trial.”

“I enjoy taking part in these studies as they are a way of giving back and the research that is done can help countless other people. The staff are amazing and very informative. The whole process to me is fascinating. To think that a cure for something has been developed and that I was a part of that is amazing.”

“As regards my experience with the RACE study at Auckland Clinical studies, I found that it was excellent. Any initial misgivings i may have had were soon dispelled by the clear information I was given both verbally and in written form. Everyone was supportive and caring so that one felt safe throughout, and I was never put under any kind of pressure. Any questions I had were promptly answered and small problems solved. At no time did I feel worried or concerned. Despite it being a commitment for several months, it was good to know that there was some flexibility about dates and times of appointments.

The environment was welcoming and comfortable, although it was very obviously a medical ward! The medical care was thorough and I found that very reassuring, speaking as a cancer survivor. Being involved in a clinical trial was very interesting – I was fascinated by the timing of everything, even having to eat our meals to the minute.

I also welcomed the opportunity to meet other women who had travelled the same path as me, even though we were very different people.

I would like to thank all the nurses and doctors and you too, Margaret, for making the experience a positive one for me”
