The Food Standards Agency (FSA)
We deliver the FSA’s diverse programme of consumer engagement and research, in partnership with our colleagues at 2CV Research. Central to the programme is the creation and management of deliberative citizens’ forums, but the partnership also undertakes a range of both traditional and innovative research approaches including using mobile phone based feedback to understand real-time behaviour, quantitative tracking of consumer views related to the EU Exit and facilitating a small scale consumer panel feeding into the FSA’s Regulating Our Future programme.
General Dental Council (GDC)
We run the GDC’s 5,000-strong ‘Word of Mouth’ Panel – an online panel of dental patients. The panel is used to ensure that the patient voice, through qualitative and quantitative research, directly informs the development of the organisation’s strategy, policy and communications.
General Medical Council (GMC)
We have a longstanding relationship with the GMC having conducted extensive research with patients, public and doctors to inform the development of policy and guidance on a variety of topics. Our work has also provided evidence to allow the GMC to drive improvements to their Fitness to Practise process.
You will find links to a number of our reports for the GMC on our Publications page.
General Osteopathic Council (GOsC)
We are supporting the GOsC to conduct patient, public and professional engagement as part of a broader piece of work being conducted with the General Dental Council and the Collaborating Centre for Values Based Practice. This looks at the support that regulators can provide within the dynamic context of an individual patient consultation, and the potential to establish and test decision making tool that would assist shared decision making between patients and professionals.
