Participant Call: General Practitioner Access to Community Diagnostic Scheme

diagnostic test social

TASC, Ireland’s Think Tank for Action on Social Change, is recruiting research participants to contribute to a project on the General Practitioners Access to Community Diagnostics (GPACD) Scheme. The GPACD scheme has been set up to improve access to diagnostic tests and thus decrease patient waiting times.

For this independent evaluation of the scheme, we are currently inviting patients, healthcare workers, insurance companies and private providers to participate in one-to-one interviews. 

To participate, please contact us at

You can find more information about the study, including its purpose and how your data will be handled by accessing the GPACD information sheet or the GPACD information sheet (easy read).

By participating in this research you will be contributing to our knowledge of how the GPACD scheme is affecting patient wait lists!
