    Is it me, or is anyone else instantly suspicious at the offer of £30 for completing a questionnaire?
    Did they say why you were refused Ally?

    The £30 is an honorarium for taking part. It's a common practice. It's a survey, hence the compensation/reward.

    It doesn't say specifically why people do not qualify, there's just an email sent and a page shown to those that do.

    Please note, we do not set the criteria, nor the honorarium. This is set by Oracle Fieldwork, the organisers of this study.

    Interesting - I never knew about financial incentives. I didnt make any suggestion that you did set the criteria for this, did I give that impression?

    Shame I didn't qualify. Stopped taking victoza once increased from small dose. It had no impact on my sugar levels and lost weight through sickness. I was very disappointed. I used victoza after having my first child on levermir and novarapid. It was to help me lose weight. I had high hopes for it.

    I took this survey at the beginning of December but I have not heard anything since. Has anyone else completed the survey and received their £30?

    Robbie, same here, completed it, but at the end there was no confirmation of receiving said £30, or timescale.

    I am a member of Diabetes UK and I have written to them to ask if they have any information about this survey. It seems that nobody has received payment for participating in this activity and I'm wondering if it was a means of gathering personal information.

    Cheques began being sent out last week. It is great to know you got them. If they don't arrive please send me a PM! :)

    The survey ends on 25//1 so there is 1 day left if you would like to take part.
