A residents’ survey to evaluate how well Dudley’s Public Health team has worked with communities during the Covid-19 crisis has launched with prizes of £50 high street vouchers for three lucky entrants.
2020 has been a challenging year but has shown how well services and communities can co-operate and pull together for the benefit of everyone. Evaluating this response and developing on good practice will help to create a more resilient service for the future.
The council’s Public Health team has come up with the simple but comprehensive survey which asks people about:
- How informed they’ve felt during the crisis
- Information on their own fitness levels, diet, amount of exercise they take
- Mental wellbeing, confidence and anxiety levels
- How they’ve managed relationships or isolation during the crisis
- How their work, education or finances have been affected
- How well they’ve been able to access health and social care during the pandemic.
Councillor Nicolas Barlow, cabinet member for health and adult social care said:
“We know this has been an immensely challenging time for everyone. Both those in the public and care sectors and the general public who have had to radically adapt the way they live their lives in order to protect themselves and the wider community.
“This survey delves into how people have been feeling, the emotional and financial impact the pandemic might have had on them, their lifestyle choices and how informed and supported they’ve felt.
“By completing this survey, our residents will help us identify any issues and help us plan for the future so that we can be as resilient as possible for the communities we serve.”
To say thanks for completing the survey a prize draw is available for people to enter. Three people who complete the survey will win £50 in high street vouchers.
