Research Plus+ have carried out interviews, focus groups and elements of qualitative data analysis on several research projects undertaken by the Social Care Workforce Research Unit. Their interviews and analysis work have always been of excellent quality and have been completed within agreed timeframes. In addition, they have always shown great initiative and tenacity in finding and gaining consent from research participants. ¬†We would wholeheartedly recommend Research Plus+ for similar kinds of work in the future” Dr Martin Stevens, Social Care Workforce Research Unit, King’s College London.
