What we do

We are an independent research and training organisation that primarily works in the fields of public policy development, health improvement and public health.  iPiP’s main focus is to ensure evidence is reflected in practice to improve health and wellbeing.


Emotional Intelligence

emotional intelligenceEmotional Intelligence is concerned with how people choose to manage and get the best out of themselves and those around them.  It can start with identifying and dismantling our own self-limiting beliefs or restrictive habits in making different choices.  Emotions increase our awareness of others, enhancing our understanding of why others behave the way they do.  Emotional Intelligence is the capacity to adapt our behaviour within different situations to achieve the best outcome.  Like any skill, Emotional Intelligence can be developed and requires practice, it is about ‘managing the moment’.

If you want an opportunity to reflect upon your own emotional intelligence and how you are utilising this in your professional journey come and join us on a two-day programme that provides a safe space for you to do so.

You will:

  • Explore how attitude and mind-set can drive and sustain higher performance
  • Measure and reflect upon your own strengths and challenges, and your ability to build powerful relationships
  • Learn how to use new tools and techniques to build commitment, accountability and manage conflict
  • Leave with an action plan for personal transformation

67% per cent of competencies for leadership relate to emotional intelligence.

Staff are twice as likely to report feeling physically and emotionally healthy if they work within a positive leadership climate.

Globally, 71% of staff do not feel engaged, but engagement is four times higher when the leader creates a positive climate.

Evaluation, Service Review and Audits

iPiP have extensive experience of conducting audits and reviews of public health services, initiatives and projects, with particular expertise in reviewing Stop Smoking, Health Visiting, District Nursing and Midwifery Services.  We work with leading public health academics, use literature reviews and NICE guidance and consult stakeholders to establish current best practice and then conduct robust evaluations using a mixture of qualitative and quantitative research methods.  Final reports will always include discussion of how improvements can be made.  Our clients include commissioners and service providers looking to evaluate existing services and improve local delivery.  We have also conducted national review projects for the Department of Health and Public Health England.


Insight driven commissioning and service delivery

There is an increasing evidence base reflecting the impact that involving the audience in the design and delivery of public health interventions increases engagement and positive outcomes.

iPiP offers flexible, cost effective social marketing and behavioural insights training support along with their partner organisations Brilliant Futures and Activmob.

Project Management and Development

From the development of an idea to the implementation of a completed project, our experienced staff can either manage a project for you or provide additional support to your staff through any stage of the project’s development.  We always advise our clients to integrate a process of evaluation into their project design so its efficacy can be assessed following completion.

We have particular expertise in tobacco control, midwifery services, mental health services, environmental health and nursing care but are experienced in all areas of public health project development and management.

Organisational Culture

Organisational culture refers to the underlying beliefs, values and assumptions held by members of an organisation and the practices and behaviours that exemplify and reinforce them.

Some aspects of organisational culture are very visible such as, ‘acting friendly to clients/patients’, others are harder to observe since they represent the invisible assumptions, values and core beliefs such as, ‘going beyond expectations’, ‘doing things right first time’, ‘being honest and ethical in all transactions’.

The messages that come from an organisation’s culture are closely linked to the organisation’s strategy and management practices and have a great impact on the people who work there.  For this reason it is very important to understand those aspects of your organisation’s culture that may influence its performance.

iPiP are working with their partner organisation Denison Europe to utilise the Denison Organisational Culture model to support health and social care organisations to define and measure culture in a way that is useful to managers because it links culture with bottom line performance measures. It is evidence-based, systematic and aligned. It acknowledges the dynamic tensions of keeping staff involved in strategy and ensuring the organisation is managed to deliver what it promises to those receiving its services. The Denison model is based on 27 years research[1] on over 1,500 organisations and 50,000 individuals.

It uses 60 questions ( completed in 20 minutes) to explore understanding of all 12 indices ( 5 questions per indices) focusing on the four culture traits that have significant impact on performance in areas such as quality, innovation, employee satisfaction and financial performance.

The model is based on four key concepts/traits:

  • Mission Why are we here and where do we want to go?
  • Consistency Do we have the right systems and processes in places?
  • InvolvementDo we have staff who are committed and feel a sense of ownership?
  • AdaptabilityDo we embrace change, understand whom we serve and learn?

There are also additional brief, reliable and valid tools (modules) that can be added to and strengthen the value of the information gathered in the main survey.  The modules include: Innovation, Safety, Risk, Engagement, Commitment and Trust.

The iPiP and Denison team can support you to understand the model, undertake a survey, using normative scoring to benchmark your organisation in relation to a global database; interpret the results by driving honest conversations which lead to thoughtful actions and result in higher performance.

Public Health Workforce Development

iPiP runs a major public health development programme which has been delivered in over 40 areas with participants drawn from a wide variety of disciplines.  iPiP is especially experienced in addressing the public health and health inequalities agenda and has undertaken audits relating to life expectancy and infant mortality targets.  In particular, iPiP has been involved in developing programmes addressing infant mortality, redesigning of health visiting and district nursing in a number of health economies.


iPiP looks for the gaps in the evidence to ensure public health practice positively impacts on the health of the most vulnerable.


Our trainers have a national reputation for excellence and are adept at developing tailored training for staff at all levels with a particular emphasis on translating national policy initiatives to practice at local level.  We have developed evidence-based training packages for midwives working with pregnant women who smoke and environmental health officers enforcing smokefree legislation.
