Regionwide Survey about COVID-19 Impact on Lives

Posted by:  - Posted on:

Sunderland residents are being urged to complete a region wide survey about how Covid-19 has impacted their lives.

The survey features questions about health, work, testing, self-isolating and vaccines. This will help to develop a regionwide insight into the impact of the pandemic. It is being supported by Durham University, the National Institute for Health Research and the NHS Integrated Covid Hub North East.

Councillor Graeme Miller, Leader of Sunderland City Council, said:
“We know this last year has been really difficult for everyone as we have all struggled to cope with everything the COVID pandemic has thrown at us and the impact it has had on our daily lives.

“We hope the results of this survey will help us identify what additional support people might need to manage changes to their livelihoods and day to day living.

“So I would urge all of our residents to please complete the survey to help us understand more about how your day-to-day life has been affected, including health and wellbeing, work, household finances, shopping, social and leisure activities.

“We would also like to hear your views on vaccination, the economy and the easing of lockdown restrictions and social distancing. These will play a vital part in informing local recovery plans over the coming months.”

The information provided will be used by local councils, Durham University, NHS NE Integrated Covid Hub, and the National Institute for Health Research in line with current data sharing practices. Individual responses to the survey will be completely confidential.
