Thousands asked to take part in health survey

Thousands of Manx residents are to take part in a survey about health.

The Island's public health body will send letters to 7,000 addresses on the Isle of Man in the next week asking residents to complete the survey.

The online questionnaire will take around 20 to 30 minutes to complete and ask about well-being, diet, physical activity and lifestyle choices.

The Department of Health and Social Care says the survey will help the health authorities work towards improving health on the Island and reducing health inequalities.

Taking part in the survey is voluntary and all information will be kept anonymous.
