Take part in our self-care survey for Fylde coast residents

We’re working with our partners across the Fylde coast to develop a ‘Self-Care Strategy’ and want to hear from local people on how we can support you to stay fit and well for longer.

We want to help people to live happier and healthier lives by reducing the likelihood of developing long-term conditions such as diabetes or heart disease.

We also want to better support those individuals and families across the Fylde coast living with long-term conditions to develop the knowledge, skills and self-confidence needed to care for them and their conditions effectively.

In order for this strategy to be as meaningful and effective as we wish, we believe that the views and experiences of local people should inform its approach.

We would therefore be grateful if you are able to complete a short survey and tell us a little about how you currently stay fit and healthy as well as any experience of self-care support you may have previously accessed.

Please click here to complete the survey. It should take no longer than 10 minutes.

In developing this strategy we are working to the following definition of self-care as provided by the Department of Health in 2015:

“The actions that people take for themselves, their children  and their families to stay fit and maintain good physical and mental health; meet social and psychological needs; prevent illness or accident; care for minor ailments and long term conditions; and maintain health and well-being after an acute illness or discharge from hospital.”

Paper copies of the survey can be downloaded here Self-Care Survey pdf

All completed paper copies should be returned to the following address:

Communications Team,

NHS Blackpool CCG,

Blackpool Stadium,

Seasiders Way,


FY1 6JX.

All responses are completely anonymous and will be collated alongside the findings from other activities into a larger report which will help to inform the approach detailed within our proposed strategy.

The survey will close on Friday, January 20, 2016.
