Public Health Services are reminding people that they still have a few days left to complete the Guernsey and Alderney Wellbeing Survey which closes next week. The last date for submitting a response is Tuesday 31st October.
Invitations to take part in the survey were sent to 2,500 randomly selected households across Guernsey and Alderney in mid-September and it was later opened to all residents through the online version on or by requesting a paper copy from the Public Health office: Tel 224136. Paper copies can be collected from the Guilles-Alles Library and its community libraries. Latvian and Portuguese versions are also available either online or as a hard copy.
Those who complete the online survey have the option of entering a draw to win a prize worth £150.
Head of Health Intelligence, Jenny Cataroche said,
"We are pleased with the response so far and would like to thank everyone who has already taken part in the survey. There is still time to have your say and the more people we hear from the better idea we will have of the range of opinions and health needs across our islands. This is a once-in-five-years chance for people to have their say and share their experiences on a huge range of topics linked to wellbeing. The survey is open to anyone living locally who is aged 16 or over, so whether you are 16 or 96 years old we want to hear from you."
The survey takes around 20 to 30 minutes to complete and responses will be treated in strict confidence. Data from the survey will be analysed by the Health Intelligence Team in Public Health and a report will be published in the middle of next year.
