Support After COVID Study:

Follow-up Survey

Many thanks for completing our first survey about your health and wellbeing during Covid-19 up until July/August 2020. You kindly provided your email address to allow us to contact you after about six months. We are hoping to find out how things have been going for you, but you don’t have to take part in this follow-up survey.

We are a multidisciplinary team of health researchers based at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, in Scotland. We are funded by the Chief Scientist Office in Scotland and we have explained what we found out in the first survey to many people who we hope will use the information to improve support services for people. You can see the full recommendations and a summary of results on our website by clicking here. We would like to know more about what support people have been accessing and whether it has been helpful.

If you are willing to help, please note the following:

  • It is your choice to take part in this survey.

  • This survey will be asking you about your recent experiences, which may include having been ill, possibly critically ill. If you feel that remembering this experience will cause discomfort or distress that you are not able to manage at this point, please do not continue. 

  • We do not record your personal details and only ask you some questions about you and your experiences during the pandemic.

  • If at some point during the survey, you decide not to take part anymore, you can simply close the page and your data will be erased.

  • When you have completed the survey, your data will be automatically saved and stored securely and anonymously. 

  • The information may be used for future studies or by other parties in an anonymous format.

  • This project has been reviewed by Queen Margaret University Ethics Committee

  • The survey will take place between 25th February 2021 and 21st March and results will be available on this web page when available. 

  • Please click on the link to the survey (provided in your email) if you agree to take part.​​
