'Extending Working Lives in the NHS: Opportunities, Challenges and Prospects': online research survey
Large numbers of staff leave the NHS, often significantly ahead of their retirement age. We would like to hear your views to address this issue and the Trust is participating in an MRC-funded research study called “Extending working lives in the NHS: opportunities, challenges and prospects” led by the University of Leicester.
We would be grateful if you would spare 8-10 minutes of your time to complete the online survey about plans for your future which is being hosted by University of Bath. All information will be treated in absolute confidence. All responses will be anonymised. No participating NHS Trust or NHS employee will be named in the report to MRC or other publications on findings. The study has been endorsed by the NHS Working Longer Review Group, which includes representatives of health care professional bodies, NHS employers and health sector trade unions. 

Ambulance Violence Survey
Your input is needed on a multi-university, international research survey to examine violence against ambulance personnel. All ambulance personnel are encouraged to participate.  
The purpose of the survey is to obtain the information needed for the design of interventions (including training programs, policies and procedures) to reduce and prevent violence against ambulance personnel around the world.
