AbstractThis article provides a reflective account of our work on a project at the University of Derby and Bart’s Health NHS Trust, London, to evaluate a questionnaire measure of sickle cell disease (SCD) patients’ satisfaction with hospital care. Romaana Kapadi’s involvement was supported by a University internship and scholarship, and this article covers the skills she gained as an undergraduate student researcher, and how the opportunity helped with her plans to become a health psychologist. We hope this article will inspire other undergraduate students to grasp opportunities like this, and encourage lecturers to get students more involved with their research, as well as illustrating the role that health psychologists can play in improving healthcare for people with SCD.
