GKA’s approach is based entirely around knowledge and ensuring you get the right information for your medical fieldwork project – and fast. All of our services are underpinned by the GKA Knowledge Works, which aims to utlilise our vast internal knowledge base, links with leading physicians and many years of experience in medical fieldwork.
Over the past three years we have built a powerful library of resources for medical market researchers, and you can find our top resources below ready for download:
The NHS can be complex, and trying to understand who is responsible for which services, what influence they have and, most importantly, who we can access for healthcare market research can be a tricky task. That’s why we’ve put together a top line overview of the NHS commissioning structure to help you. This guide gives you:
Who's who in the process
Who we can access for market research
We use our healthcare market research panel in combination with our in-house call centre with 20+ recruitment specialists to recruit participants for both qualitative and quantitative market research methodologies. Our panel ranges from Nurses to CCG’s and KOL’s who are available to participate in both online and offline research.
Download our global conference checker for 2016 and keep up to date with what’s on for your therapy area so you can avoid your fieldwork clashing with a major conference.
Screener surveys (qualifying questionnaires) are a critical aspect of the recruitment process, especially for patient-centric medical market research due to the specific nature and detail of the criteria that is needed for the research. Our free guide will help you create a successful screener for your patient focus groups. The guide gives you tips on:
Language and tone of voice

Explanation of NHS terminology and acronyms
Therapy area specific terms clarified
Simplifying market research terms
