Would you be interested in taking part in a qualitative interview? This would take place over Zoom, last 60-minutes and we would give you £30 as a thank-you

If you would like to discuss taking part, please email e.stubbs@lse.ac.uk.

We are a team of researchers at the London School of Economics who have funding from the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) to carry out research into how care homes in England developed and implemented their visiting policies during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the factors that helped to shape this.

As part of our research, we want to speak to close relatives and friends of people who were living in a care home during the pandemic.

This will help us to understand how care home visiting policies were understood and experienced by close relatives and friends of residents and to identify ways of improving how visiting policies are developed during public health emergencies such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

The interview will take place remotely using video-conferencing platforms (e.g. Zoom, Microsoft Teams) or by telephone, as you prefer, at a time that is convenient to you. With your permission, we will record the interview.

Your information will be entirely confidential; only the research team will be able to see the information you provide. It will be analysed thematically alongside information provided by other participants. No-one taking part will be identified in any report.

Everyone taking part will receive £30 as a thank you.
