An updated ‘Meet the Ethnographers’ page has now been added to the HiSLAC website.

HiSLAC ethnographers will visit selected hospitals twice over a three-year period, and will shadow different members of staff in Emergency Departments (EDs), Clinical Decision Units (CDUs) and on acute medical wards.

The dedicated webpage gives staff, patients and relatives quick, easy access to more details on the sub-study and the team themselves.

The ethnographers – all from the University of Leicester - will be conducting a qualitative sub-study at 20 case study sites to find out more about how hospitals organise systems for weekend care. The data gathered will contribute to the evaluation of aspects of NHS England's policy drive to provide seven day services right across the NHS.
