Community Health Partnerships (CHP)

We have partnered with Research by Design since the start of 2014 on a broad range of engagement activity across the primary and community healthcare sector.  Strategically, RbD delivered a visioning project to help us better understand the strategic estate needs of key stakeholders such as Clinical Commissioning Groups, NHS England and Local Authorities.  This included an international review of best practice in estate management.   At an operational level, the RbD team have also been helping us deliver a robust tenant satisfaction programme across our 300 LIFT buildings which has involved engaging with over 1,000 GPs, practice managers and other staff about the experience they have within their surgery building.   Most recently, they have also been helping us map out the policy and logistical barriers facing GPs who wish to improve their properties. 

I have been impressed with the responsiveness of the RbD team and how they have rapidly developed their expertise in primary care and strategic estate management issues.  Dave and his team have delivered several highly effective presentations to our Board and Executive Management Team.  They have shown themselves to be adept at securing face time with an often time-poor audience and I have no hesitation in recommending them for similar research projects

Research by Design were very professional and knowledgeable with a great work ethic and strong understanding of what our business wanted - identified and focussed on improvement areas. They interrogated the data without having to be prodded to do so. Our experience of working with RbD was excellent, they were patient and understanding throughout.
