Researchers at Queen's University Belfast are looking for volunteers aged 65 years and over to take part in a focus group.

A new type of patch has been developed to deliver medicines across the skin using 'microneedles' (see photo - shown next to penny) and researchers want to know what you think about them and how they could be used.

The background to microneedles will be explained, so no prior knowledge is required. The group discussion will last under an hour.

£30 + travel expenses will be given to each participant. Refreshments will also be provided.
