Health Wise Wales

Health Wise Wales hopes to involve everyone in Wales in improving the health and well being of the nation. Health Wise Wales is a national research study seeking to understand the health needs of our population in order to help build and plan health services in the future.

As research is vital to develop better treatments and manage diseases, Health Wise Wales is recruiting members of the Welsh population to take part in their campaign, whatever your age, wherever you live, whether you’re healthy or unwell.

What they ask from you?

  1. Give them your contact details.
  2. Answer questions about your lifestyle, health and wellbeing.
  3. Allow Health Wise Wales to access and use the information in your medical records.

They will use your contact details to:

  • Get in touch with you every 6 months or so, to ask you to answer questions about your lifestyle, health and wellbeing.
  • In order to access your medical records, to get information about your healthcare like admissions to hospital or visits to your doctor.
  • To also get in touch with you to tell you about new studies that you might want to be a part of. For example, there may be studies in the future that you could be a part of because of your age or because you have a health condition such as asthma.
