The National Study of Health and Relationships is an important study helping those working in healthcare to build a picture of life in Britain.
The findings are used widely by doctors, health service providers and policy makers to help plan health services and health education programmes.
We’re Britain’s largest independent social research agency. For the last 50 years we’ve worked on behalf of government and charities to find out what people really think about important social issues and how Britain is run.
One of our interviewers will call at your home to arrange an interview at a time that suits you. The interview itself is really relaxed – there’s no need to prepare and you can skip any questions you don’t want to answer.
We understand you may have some questions about our credentials and how we deal with personal information.
Whoever you are, whatever you think – your opinion is important to us. To get a truly representative picture of the study area we’ve chosen your address at random. This means we can’t replace you with anyone else.
