Since 2000, Ipsos MORI has been conducting a survey on public perceptions of the NHS and social care in England on behalf of the Department of Health and Social Care.
The aim of the survey is to explore public attitudes towards, and perceptions of, the NHS and social care services. The core survey includes tracker questions which are asked each time it is run. This allows the variation of public opinion over time to be measured.
In addition to these tracker questions, new questions are sometimes added to incorporate changes that have occurred related to health and social care. For example, this year a series of questions were added which asked about how effective the government is being in tackling obesity, reducing smoking, reducing harmful drinking, and reducing diabetes. This flexibility ensures that the survey can reflect the most current issues facing the NHS and social care in England.
Links to the data tables and reports for the Winter 2015 wave of the survey can be found below.
Winter 2015 wave: Ipsos MORI interviewed a representative quota sample of 1,007 adults in England aged 16 and over. Face-to-face interviews were conducted in-home between 2 November and 13 December 2015. The data are weighted to the known population profile of England (aged 16 and over).
Evaluation of the Community Learning Mental Health Research Project
In February 2017, the Department for Education (DfE) commissioned Ipsos MORI, in partnership with the Centre for Mental Health and Liz Lawson, to conduct the Evaluation of phase two of the Community Learning Mental Health (CLMH) 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.
