From time to time UK Biobank asks its participants to undertake a web-based questionnaire. Four different questionnaires have been completed.
- 24-hour diet recall – from February 2011 to June 2012, four separate mailings over 16 months.
- Health Minds (cognitive function) – November to December 2014, with reminders sent out January to April 2015.
- Occupational history – June to November 2015, with reminders sent in January 2016.
- Thoughts & feelings – July 2016 – February 2017, reminders will be sent until June 2017.
- Digestive health – will begin during March 2017
Many thanks for completing our questionnaires. Do keep an eye on your email inbox for others. Questionnaires allow UK Biobank to focus on health matters that are not usually available through existing medical records, such as what we eat, and cognitive decline. Further questionnaires will ask about pain, and healthy ageing. A repeat of the ‘Healthy minds’ questionnaire is also planned.
If you have been invited to do a questionnaire, but you can’t find the link, you can complete it via our secure Update your contact details page.
