Valid Research worked with the Institute of Child Health at University College London to jointly deliver this project for Public Health England. The brief was to explore existing knowledge of, and attitudes to, group B meningococcal disease and the MenB vaccine among parents of young children. The results of this work would be used to inform the introduction of the vaccine into the NHS childhood immunisation schedule and the literature provided to parents.
Valid Research oversaw the day-to-day management of the project and conducted many of the interviews and focus groups with 60 parents. Our team led the analysis of the qualitative data using thematic analysis and jointly produced the final report with recommendations for Public Health England.
The project was delivered on time. The key findings and recommendations were presented to the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, the Public Health England National Immunisation Network meeting and at the Meningitis Research Foundation Symposium. As a direct result of this work, changes were made to the planned implementation of the vaccine and the content of leaflets issued to parents.
Our client says:
It was a pleasure working with Valid Research. We produced a high quality important piece of research in a short timescale. This would not have been possible without the contribution of Valid Research. The team hit the ground running and continued at the same pace until the satisfactory end of the project.
