Since 2015, Ipsos MORI has conducted an annual survey of people aged 50 and over to track public perceptions of health, ageing, and care and support services on behalf of the Department of Health and Social Care.
The findings from this survey will complement those from the NHS and social care public perceptions tracker by helping to build a clearer picture of perceptions on health, ageing, and support amongst the 50 and over age group. Those in this age group are more likely to have used these kinds of services themselves, cared for someone who has, or generally thought in greater depth about their own ageing. As a result, they are likely to have a more informed view about issues relating to care and support.

2017 wave: Ipsos MORI interviewed a representative quota sample of 755 adults in England aged 50 and over. Face-to-face interviews were conducted in-home between 3 January and 19 February 2017. The data have been weighted to the known profile of the population.
Evaluation of the Community Learning Mental Health Research Project

Feedback collection to improve maternity services
Ipsos MORI was commissioned by NHS England in February 2018 to understand how maternity services currently collect and use feedback from women to improve services, and to explore the opportunities for the collection of digital feedback in maternity services with the dual purposes of national benchmarking and local service improvement.
