Survey to capture service users’ perspective on the Research Design Service (RDS) when applying for NIHR funding opportunities

A survey has been developed to capture service users’ perspective on the Research Design Service (RDS) when applying for NIHR funding opportunities.  It aims to provide a national picture of RDS through its users’ feedback on how they felt that their needs were either met or unmet. Subsequently, by monitoring changes in trends of user satisfaction, the aim is to provide recommendations for improvement in service provided to RDS over the new contractual term 2018-2023. There is also a PPIE question – so this is a great opportunity to collate insight into PPIE strengths and gaps, at early stage of the research application process. This data will be most useful to all working within a PPIE capacity. The survey closes on the 15th August 2019.
