New health survey launched


A NEW survey has been launched to measure health and well-being in Warrington.
The borough’s public health team and partners are gathering vital information about local people.
This month will see the launch of a health and well-being survey which will ask a number of questions on a range of topics known to affect a person’s health and well-being – such as lifestyle, environment and social circumstances.
A similar survey was conducted in 2006 and the new one will help support work to ensure that the needs of local people are met. A random sample of 18,000 residents has been selected from a population register and questionnaires will be posted to these people this month and in February.
Dr Rita Robertson, director of public health for Warrington said: “The survey is crucial to informing the effective targeting of services and resources to meet need and address inequalities in Warrington.
“The contribution of those completing the questionnaires will be sincerely valued and their time and effort greatly appreciated”.
Questionnaires should take about 20 minutes to complete and all information gathered will be anonymous and treated with strict confidence.
