What are the barriers to improving health with ageing? What could be done to overcome them?

We would like to understand your views on health and ageing. We are asking you to identify issues that prevent you from improving your health now, and minimising your risk of disease in the future. We also ask what would make a real difference in helping people like you achieve a healthier, happier old age; something research increasingly shows us is possible.

We will treat your responses in the strictest confidence and we don’t need any personally identifiable information.
