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. For example, questions asking specifically about childhood obesity were added to this wave of the survey. 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 2016 wave of the survey can be found below.
Winter 2016 wave: Ipsos MORI interviewed a representative quota sample of 1,025 adults in England aged 16 and over. Face-to-face interviews were conducted in-home between 31 October and 18 December 2016. The data are weighted to the known population profile of England (aged 16 and over).
