Health Survey for England

Health Survey for England

The Health Survey for England is a major monitoring tool looking at the nation’s health. It is used by the Government to plan health services and make important policy decisions that have an impact on us all.

Info Essential information

The Health Survey for England is the main source of information for the Government about the nation’s health. It’s funded by NHS Digital and is used to shape health policy and improve health services, so that we can all stay healthier, for longer.

Helping Hands Improving health services

Most of us rely on public health services, and the Health Survey for England is used by local authorities and GPs to deliver better healthcare and improve treatment. The survey alerted GPs to the fact that lots of older people weren’t aware that they had kidney disease, and as a result, GPs are now much more vigilant for early symptoms.

Apple 5 a day

The survey has resulted in health awareness campaigns that are helping us all to be healthier, like the 5 a day campaign to get people to eat five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

Map Of The EnglandWe need to speak to everyone

We want the survey to be as representative of England as possible, which means we need to speak to people all over the country, not just people who have visited the hospital or are in touch with their GP.
