Thanks

Firstly, our thanks to all those who have participated in the many research projects that have contributed to Safewards. Huge numbers of patients and staff have committed time to be interviewed, share their ideas and thinking. They have also filled out tens of thousands of questionnaires. These research participants are many more than just those who supported the research of the Safewards research programme. Also included are those who participated in all the research we reviewed and that contributed to the formulation of the Safewards Model. That would cover research conducted in many different nations and at times going back to the 1960s. Participating in research really can make a difference. Thank you.
