Staffordshire University survey - uptake of NHS Health Checks

Staffordshire University are interested in factors that might explain variation in uptake of NHS Health Checks across different general practices.

Despite some evidence that practice size is related to uptake, and that factors such as opening hours, training and advertising should be considered, we still do not understand why uptake varies so much between practices. To address this, they have designed a short survey for GP practice staff asking for information on level of uptake and a range of possible determinants, including practice characteristics and NHS Health Check processes.

Using findings they hope to provide: Tips on how you can improve your NHS Health Check uptake!

We would like all GP practices to engage with the research by sparing just 15 minutes to complete the survey. We would also appreciate if commissioners could distribute the survey link to all GP practices delivering NHS Health Checks in their area. The larger the response the more we can learn from the findings nationally.

Responses are confidential and so general practices will not be identifiable from any outputs of this work. If you would like to help us in supporting Staffordshire University by completing the survey, please click here: bit.ly/1NQHvtA

The deadline to complete the survey is 1st May 2016
