NHS England has commissioned the Institute for Employment Studies (IES) to conduct a study of the wellbeing of the primary care workforce. IES is an independent, not-for-profit research institute that specialises in evaluation and research on employment and HR matters.

This short survey is the fifth in a series of surveys that will be used to assess the current wellbeing of the primary care workforce. The survey will ask you to reflect on your personal wellbeing as well as the functioning of your team and your experiences of working remotely. It should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.

Your responses to this questionnaire are entirely confidential, and only aggregated data will be shared with the NHS. By participating in the survey, you consent to IES holding your data. Your survey data is anonymous, you will not be asked for your name.

This data will be held securely in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018/GDPR and only accessed by the research team at IES. All data will be destroyed six months after the research has been completed: the expected date for data deletion is June 2022.

If you have any questions about the survey or the research you can contact Beth Mason: beth.mason@employment-studies.co.uk.
