Excellent news! Hopefully there'll be more once it's being recruited through GPs, as some people aren't big users of social media, some may hesitate until they see that the study is being promoted via trusted NHS practitioners, and some may prefer to receive the information in their own languages (which primary care clinics are often reasonably good at doing).
For all of those who have signed up to the DecodeME contact list, an email has been sent out by the communications team about future updates from the DecodeME team. It contains a link to a short (5 question) Surveymonkey survey.
If you haven't seen this in your inbox, please check your junk/spam folder. If you still can't find it then the next easiest troubleshooting step would be to try signing-up again at the bottom of https://www.decodeme.org.uk/ to make sure that you are in the system.
I didn't get the email, despite registering and receiving previous ones. I have just re-registed. It said 'thanks for registering', which suggests to me I had somehow fallen off the list.
My daughter hasn't received it either.
Edit: I then immediately received 2 identical emails thanking me for registering, but no email yet inviting me to do the survey.
Was the survey email only sent out to people in the UK? I got this yesterday, but no message about a survey:
Maybe the emails are being sent out in batches, and not all have been sent yet. Any information on this, @Andy?
I'm waiting on feedback from the comms team on the points raised by Trish and Dolphin. I'll come back when I know something more.
I'm yet to get a reply to my enquiries but in the meantime these have been posted.
just to say I had the email with the survey link, i think it was yesterday but it could have been wednesday
I've received no email.
I deleted my previous post. I received the following message yesterday, but no link to survey. Could it be because i am out of country? Edit: from post above, yes, because i am not from UK. It may be necessary to mention UK residents only.
Thanks again for signing up to receive updates on the DecodeME study. It’s great to have you onboard. The project is now officially underway and we are doing the necessary work so that we can recruit people into the study from next spring.
As we said before, we are aiming to recruit all participants from the UK, but will recruit internationally if necessary. We will continue to keep you posted with developments and will share more news when we have it by social media, blogs and e-newsletters. In the meantime, we thought you would like to know that we have formally started on the journey.
The DecodeME team
I've had the same message, I think (haven't checked) and I am definitely in the UK! No link to survey.
No email so reregistered with link provided by Andy. Two emails within a minute with links to info about study but no link to a survey.
Was this an additional email to the two welcoming you to the study?
I didn't receive anything (I have been checking the spam folder), so just subscribed again. Two identical emails welcoming me, but nothing yet about the survey.
