One of our interviewers will visit in the next week or so, knocking at your door and keeping socially distanced. So that you know who they are, all of our interviewers carry photo ID with our logo on it. We understand that you may be busy, so we’ll organise the interview at a time that suits you.
Please note: All interviewing will currently take place remotely; the interviewer will not ask to enter your home.
The interview itself is really relaxed. Your interviewer will ask you about a range of topics including general health and eating habits. We would also like you to complete four 24-hour dietary recalls online. And don’t worry – you don’t have to answer any questions you don’t want to, we can just skip on to the next one.
The nurse visit
The second part of the survey, if you agree, is a visit by a qualified nurse. The nurse will ask you some questions about your health and, if you consent, take some physical measurements, including a blood sample.
No need to prepare
There’s no need to prepare for the interview. You don’t need any special knowledge; we just want to hear about your eating and drinking habits. Most people agree to be interviewed and enjoy taking part.
