Identifying carers

The Otsuka and Lundbeck Alliance has opened an online consultation to gather a range of views in order to identify where barriers exist and suggest solutions for improving carers’ support.  The consultation is open to all those with an involvement or interest in schizophrenia care, and should take between 10-15 minutes to complete.

The results will be analysed by MHP Communications, the health policy consultancy employed by the Otsuka and Lundbeck Alliance. 

The information supplied will be used to inform a report setting out stakeholders’ views and recommendations on support for carers of people with schizophrenia.  All responses will be treated anonymously and you will not be contacted unless you choose to supply your contact details.  You have the right to withhold information or withdraw from the survey at any time.

MHP Communications will comply with all UK laws relating to confidentiality and protecting your personal data and the best practice guide for using statistics in communications relating to confidentiality developed by The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR), The Market Research Society (MRS) and the Royal Statistical Society.
