Research study into attitudes towards long term health conditions 2011

This report presents the results of the third and final wave of a three-wave tracking study commissioned by the Department of Health with Ipsos MORI.

The aims of the research programme are to exploring attitudes towards ‘self-care’ and, more specifically:

  • explore the general public’s perceptions and behaviour with regard to both their own health and the NHS generally; and
  • capture the attitudes and behaviour of those people with a long term health condition with regard to the self treatment of their condition and their use of healthcare services.
