Deadline for lifestyle survey looming

Around one-seventh of forms submitted

Residents picked to take part in the Island's health and lifestyle survey need to submit their views for the sake of everyone else.

Results are expected to provide an understanding of people's health and wellbeing, and help shape cross-governmental policy.
