Health and social research
Delivering accurate and extensive bio-measurement data for
government and academic research studies using our flexible,
efficient and cost-effective fieldwork models, delivered by our
professional and friendly nurses and clinicians.
MDG's raison d'être is its ability to provide efficient
and innovative methods of capturing bio-measurement data using its
nationwide mobile nurse and clinic networks. We work closely with
TNS BMRB, one of the UK's leading providers of high quality survey
Currently operating 12 regional clinics and 370 mobile nurses in
the UK and Ireland, MDG is perfectly placed to deliver to a wide
range of ad hoc and longitudinal research studies in health and
social research, meeting each study's bespoke requirements and all
receiving the highest quality of bio-measurement and cognitive data
For study participants, the flexibility of visiting a nearby
clinic or welcoming one of our experienced, trained research nurses
to their home offers choice and convenience. Our nurses and
clinicians are professional and friendly and ensure that the
research experience is positive and meets ethical requirements.
This in turn, provides each study with the very best opportunity to
collect high quality data and to maximise the response rate, a key
issue when measuring the success of any study.
All studies are closely managed by our project and operation
teams, and use our proprietary software and systems. These systems
provide efficient and secure transmission of the data sent to and
collected from, our clinics and nurse fieldworkers. Our nurse
fieldworkers use our online platform to receive instructions and to
keep the case file updated with appointment-related information.
MDG operates within clinical frameworks and is compliant with the
NHS' Information Governance toolkit, ensuring that our people,
services and processes meet the highest professional standards.
A strong and successful partnership exists between MDG and TNS
BMRB which has 'the longest continuous heritage of any social
research company in Britain' http://www.tns-bmrb.co.uk/about-us,
thereby providing our health and social research clients with an
excellent end to end provider with the required expertise,
professionalism and skill sets to deliver high quality
bio-measurement data for analysis and reporting.
