Survey on Reproductive Health Services in Wiltshire
Thursday 4th May 2023
The Sexual Health team are currently completing a Health Needs Assessment (HNA) focusing on Contraception. As part of this HNA, we have created a service user survey for individuals to feedback their experiences and thoughts around Reproductive services in Wiltshire. The survey is for anyone living in Wiltshire of reproductive age, roughly 15-55 y/o.
It would be useful for secondary schools to share these links, although the survey is not just for young people.
The deadline for responses for the survey is end of the month, 31st May 2023.
The Public Health team would like to understand how local contraception services in Wiltshire are meeting the needs of the population of reproductive age in Wiltshire.
The survey will take no longer than 10-15 minutes to complete.
The results from the survey are anonymous, all information provided will help inform service planning and delivery for contraception services in Wiltshire.
The information will be recorded and analysed on Wiltshire Council approved system and held by Public Health team in compliance with current Data Protection Legislation.
