Health survey deadline nears

Those who were sent a health and lifestyle survey by the Island's health authority are being urged to fill it in ahead of this weekend's deadline.

The Department of Health and Social Care says it's had several hundred responses so far, but the survey was sent to 7,000 Island homes.

The deadline for the questionnaire is midnight this Sunday, with residents able to take part anonymously.

The Department says the results will help shape future Government policies and have an impact on the health and wellbeing of the community.

Those who received the letter will have a code to submit their replies online, while libraries across the Island are available to provide a paper copy to those who don't have internet access.
