What our team members say about us

"We have very diverse backgrounds, experiences and expertise… Everyone is a real expert in what they do. This has a big impact on motivation."

"You don’t really have a standard NGA day… You’re doing things that you haven’t necessarily done quite the same way before and that makes it interesting."

"Working on guidelines is very rewarding. It does have a very practical and real-world impact."

What our external collaborators say about us

"Really enjoyed it and felt that it was great to be part of such a friendly, productive and supportive team."

"I have learnt so much from each person. It was coherent and functional as it was made up of individuals who respected each other."

"Everyone worked hard and contributed, whilst listening to and really respecting each other."
