About Picker Institute Europe

Picker is an Oxford-based charity with an international reputation as a key authority in the measurement and improvement of patient experience. Our mission is to make person-centred health and social care a reality for everyone.

Researching and measuring the experiences of patients, service users, and staff are key areas of our work.

The Research Division undertakes quantitative and qualitative research on person centred care and the measurement of patient experience. Its portfolio of work includes a mix of longer-term development work and shorter projects, focused on the rapid delivery of high quality evidence and resources.

The Division coordinates the NHS’s national staff and patient survey programmes on behalf of NHS England and CQC respectively. The programmes include a range of large scale and high profile surveys, which are typically coordinated centrally but administrated locally by NHS organisations.
