We are seeking 25-30 parents or carers of preschool children (aged under 5) who have had a recent respiratory tract infection (e.g. cough, ear infection or sore throat) within the last 3 months. Children need not have been prescribed an antibiotic.

We would value parents’ or carers’ input in any of the following:

  • Helping us design this study to ensure our research covers issues important to parents and their families
  • Take part in 2-3 (focus) group interviews
  • Developing ways of telling people about the research
  • Advising us on how best to share our findings


We will provide reimbursement for your time and travel.

Date required

From October 2018 until November 2019
