If you decide to take part in the survey one of our researchers will arrange to meet you at a time and location convenient to you. This could be in your home or elsewhere.
If you are interviewed outside of your home, you will be reimbursed to cover travel.
The interview will take between 45 to 60 minutes. During the interview we will ask you about the questions on the Short Term Services Survey.
We'll be asking you what you think questions mean and how you might put them into your own words. Our researcher might also ask you to describe what you think about while reading the questions.
With your permission, the interview will be audio recorded so that we can be sure exactly what has been said. If you do not want to be recorded please say so and the recording will be stopped immediately.
