Health & wellbeing research specialists
As we emerge from the pandemic, we’re starting to see the fallout from the pressures it placed on family relationships, on mental health, and of the reduced the opportunities to engage with sport and exercise.
Meanwhile, the pandemic has taken a heavy toll on our healthcare system. With healthcare professionals tackling indirect impacts such as staffing challenges and ever-growing waiting lists, alongside new Covid-19 cases and supporting people with long Covid.
We help policy makers devise and evaluate strategies to mitigate long term impacts on physical and mental health. We also support the healthcare system to develop and embed initiatives that facilitate collaborative working, alongside effective and efficient delivery – ensuring the viewpoints of healthcare professionals are central to this process.

“IFF have gone beyond selling us research. They are able to tread the delicate line between being supportive and patronising. They give us advice and draw on other examples in similar work that really helps us make informed decisions. I’ve felt all along that IFF get it. Their degree of understanding of the landscape we are operating in is impressive.”
