Ipsos MORI, an independent research agency, have been commissioned by the NHS
Security Management Service (SMS) to gather the views of NHS ambulance staff on a
number of issues concerning their personal safety and security and related security policies,
procedures and initiatives in the NHS.
This includes the support the NHS provides to
ambulance staff and how this can be improved.
We would really like to hear your views on these important issues. If you are interested in
taking part in one of two discussion groups, scheduled to take place in central London, either
morning or evening, between now and the end of January 2010, please get in touch with
Chris Marshall or Victoria Knychala on 0207 347 3935 or by email at ambulance@ipsosmori.
We have not fixed any times or dates yet for these groups, as we realise that ambulance
staff are very busy and work long shifts. Once we have a measure of interest and availability,
we will invite willing participants to attend a group scheduled to suit them.
Each discussion group will last for roughly two hours and refreshments will be provided.
There will also be a £50 ‘thank you’ given to all participants.
Ipsos MORI conforms to the 1998 Data Protection Act, is a member of the Market Research
Society and is the only research agency to be awarded the ISO 9001 certification.
