People listen to what Ipsos MORI has to say: it tells politicians and the health service what real people think and feel about it, and offers influential interpretations.

Ben Page is chief executive and also sits on the Ipsos global management council: he is credited with moving the organisation away from relying on election polls towards a new stream of work, focusing on what the public feel about services.

He has worked closely with government departments, NHS organisations and local authorities since 1992 and has a reputation for producing quick results.
