Summary of report content

This report is based on a survey conducted by workers in a local Bolton company, the research was done in July, 2017. The report was written by Healthwatch Bolton. Workers were asked to assist Healthwatch Bolton in conducting a survey about their health and health in the workplace. Workers had been identified as a hard to reach group, due to them not being free during the day to take part in research or engagement. A total of 89 people gave their opinion in this research. Comments were wide ranging and looked at employer attitudes, as well as general engagement with healthcare services, and health issues affecting people and their families. Recommendations were made as part of this report. There was no single provider to request a response from.
