This survey is the latest in a series of surveys conducted by the Ipsos MORI Social Research Institute on behalf of the Department of Health between spring 2000 and winter 2013. The aim of the survey is to explore public attitudes towards, and perceptions of, the NHS and social care services, and to provide a means of tracking these perceptions and attitudes over time.

The survey consists of ‘tracker’ questions which assess how public opinion varies over time, whilst also allowing the additions of new topics and subject areas as they arise. For example, questions about the NHS Constitution were added in 2008, and questions exploring NHS reforms were included in recent waves. This flexibility means that the research always reflects the most current issues facing the NHS and social care.
