Survey: Healthwatch Lincolnshire

Healthwatch Lincolnshire are investigating what impact housing can have on your health.

Does the property you live in generate problems and issues that you then find difficult to cope with?

Health related housing issues in Lincolnshire may include physical health, mental health or just your general wellbeing and happiness and can cost the NHS up to £2 billion per year (Kings Fund 2016). 

Problems can include such things as being unable to keep warm because of inadequate heating or poor insulation; mould in one or more rooms; your home being too big or small for your needs but you are unable to move; you have nuisance neighbours or feel very isolated because of where you live.

Healthwatch Lincolnshire have produced a short survey that can be accessed here:
