Most people spend a large part of their life at work. We know that sometimes the work they do and the substances they may encounter at work can lead to health problems – either when they were working or after they retire.
During your assessment, if you were still working, you may have told us what your current job was then. We now want to find out more about all the major jobs you have done over your working lifetime, whether you are still working or have retired.
We have designed a brief questionnaire for collecting this information which will allow you to build up a job history for yourself. This will help us to investigate if and how work has affected the health of UK Biobank participants.
We will be contacting you later in 2014 asking you to complete this online questionnaire so please watch out for your invitation which may come by email, text and/or letter.
