Your GP will be informed of the study and whether you take part. Your picture may be taken for the purpose of conference presentations; however, all identifiable features will be blacked out. Snacks will be provided at the end of visits 2, 3 and 4. If you are willing, a brief interview will take place to help us learn about your experience, which will help improve future studies.
