Fit for Work Survey

Fit for Work Survey

The Work Foundation, part of Lancaster University, is conducting a survey, on behalf of the Fit for Work UK Coalition – part of a major European initiative which aims to help people with long-term health conditions to play a full and active part at work. This research is supported by an educational grant from Abbott.

The Work Foundation would like to hear from as many people as possible who have a long-term health condition and are 16 years old or older. They want to find out about your experiences with doctors and other healthcare professionals, with employers and, if relevant, with parts of the benefits system. The success of the survey is dependent on the number of people who take part. The more people who take part, the more useful the results will be as we will have a much better understanding of your experiences and those of other people with chronic disease.

The results of this research will be made available to senior clinicians and the UK government. The aim is that the survey findings will help improve the support which people with chronic health conditions receive to stay at, or return to, fulfilling work. A short summary of the findings will also be available on the Fit for Work Europe Website at the end of the year.
