Why are we doing some interviews by video call?

Some of you may be asked to take part in your interview by video call, using Microsoft Teams. Due to COVID-19, we are following government guidelines and only conducting interviews in person when permitted to do so. Conducting the interview by video call allows us to continue with this important study at this crucial time. If we are permitted to contact you in person but you would prefer to take part by video call, please let the interviewer know this preference when they contact you.
