Health Surveys Service

We have the expertise and experience of running complex health surveys for other organisations, both local and national.

We can:

  • offer advice on running and commissioning surveys
  • commission and manage whole surveys on your behalf
  • include additional questions or demographic boosts in existing surveys

By drawing on our data expertise and surveys experience, we can provide:

  • independently conducted surveys that result in trustworthy data
  • high quality and timely data
  • a central national capacity for health surveys - this saves resource in other local and national organisations

Costs for this service

There is no charge for this data apart from when a bespoke version of the product has been requested.

If you are interested in funding content or commissioning a survey you can get in touch to discuss your requirements and we will provide costings.

If you are interested in requesting data, all of our surveys are available as anonymised datasets from the UK Data Service at no charge.

If you wish to request a bespoke version of the survey data there will be a charge for this.
