Since 2000, Ipsos MORI has conducted a series of surveys about public perceptions of the NHS and social care on behalf of the Department of Health. The report and data tables detailing the findings of the December 2011 wave of the survey are published here. The aim of the survey is to explore public perceptions of the NHS and social care services, and to track how perceptions have changed over time. The survey consists of ‘tracker’ questions which are asked in every wave of the survey, but also allows for the inclusion of questions about new topics as, and when, they arise. For example, questions about reforms to the NHS have been added to the most recent waves of the survey. This flexibility means that the research reflects the most current issues facing the NHS and social care.
