Approach to analysis and reporting

Approach to analysis and reporting

15. A coding framework was developed in order to capture emerging views and group these into relevant themes. This report sets out the range of views expressed.

16. Where respondents gave permission for their responses to be published quotes have been used to provide examples and context.

17. Four organisations did not give permission for publication of their response so, although their responses were included in the analysis, no quotes have been used from them. Where a quote has been taken from an individual's response it has been attributed to an 'individual, anon' and not to a specific person.

18. In the summary of responses in this report, where possible, groupings have been used to provide an indication of the frequency a matter was raised. This approach treats individual responses with the same weight as the response from an organisation or professional body that may have many members. Where there is reference to "few" this denotes up to 3 responses and "several" denotes 4 to 9 responses.
