Focus Groups with Data Providers


We are looking for members of staff working at specific data providers in a client-facing role (e.g. application support team, communications) and/or those with a specific training remit to help us develop a training programme for researchers who use routine data.

We would like to gain insights into what training and support you feel would benefit researchers to complement any resources your organisation already provides. Each focus group will discuss the key challenges you perceive researchers have when applying for data. In particular we are interested in understanding public engagement and fair processing requirements.

Please read the invitation letter you have received via email before you attend as we will be asking you to complete a consent form on arrival agreeing to participate in the focus group. This will include consent to audio-record the discussions.

You won’t need to read anything prior to the day, all the information will be provided throughout the focus group.

Training Dates

We will update this page in Summer 2020 with the dates of the first two training sessions and details of the online module… Keep checking!
