People living across the Caerphilly county borough are being encouraged to take part in a major survey aimed at finding out about the health and wellbeing of the local community.
Researchers from Cardiff University' School of Medicine are carrying out a follow-up survey of health and social needs in the Caerphilly county borough this autumn and questionnaires are currently being distribute to households throughout the area.
Information gathered from the original survey, carried out in in 2001, has been used to help plan and deliver key services for the people of Caerphilly county borough. This follow-up survey will continue to help various agencies shape its services by tracking changes to people's lifestyles and health issues.
Professor David Fone, Chair of Health Sciences Research, Primary Care and Public Health, School of Medicine, said "If you receive a questionnaire we would be pleased if you decided to take part again. Your answers will help us better understand patterns of health and well-being in Caerphilly and improve services in the future."
