Face Protection

Public Consultation

This aspect is being led by our team lead Nick Prowse.

We have been conducting end-user research following on from the COVID experience. We would really like end-users – especially the general public to help us develop the next generation of face protection that may avoid some of the problems we have met in 2020.

If you would like to participate in focus groups or end-user interviews please complete the form below and one of our team will get back to you.


NHS Staff, Care-workers and Healthcare Professionals survey

We invite you to tell us of your experience with the face protection you used by entering the survey below. This could be a face mask, a visor or a full head covering – it matters not it is all face protection. The survey is wholly anonymous. If you agree to a follow up interview we only require a contact email address – but this is not mandatory.


If you wish you may enter the survey more than once, but only if you have something new to add.


WHO guidance

In the mean time here is some face mask guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO).

WHO guidance on fabric masks

WHO guidance on how to wear a medical face mask.

WHO guidance on children wearing masks.

These are but three guidance items of many. Please use this link for all.
