Consultations and user engagement

This page was last reviewed and updated on 8 January 2020.

User engagement

We're committed to getting the views of users and feedback on all of our statistical products.

Following feedback from previous user engagement sessions, we've decided to change the way that we find out your views. Instead of each publication having its own engagement session, we have now combined all of these into a single bi-annual session where you can come along and give your feedback on any of our statistical releases. This includes feedback about the content, presentation, utility, and format of the statistics.

To make these sessions as accessible as possible, they'll be held on a web based platform that can be accessed by your web browser. The platform we use is Microsoft Teams.

We will not collect or record information from this platform and you can find more information about Microsoft's privacy policy on the Microsoft website.

Future sessions

We're holding a user engagement session on Monday 1 February at 10am.

You can join this session online with Microsoft Teams using the app or your web browser, at the time and date stated.

Join session

This session will cover all of our statistical products and is intended for all users to be able to join, particularly:

  • Government and health sector analysts
  • members of the pharmaceutical industry
  • members of academia
  • journalists and the media
  • members of the public

User feedback

We gather feedback from the attendees of our user engagement sessions to make sure they are helpful for our users and meet their needs. We have produced a report of this feedback and the actions to be taken from it.
