Public Health England is asking for health professionals to give feedback on whether the Smokefree Health Harms resources have had the intended impact.

Over 2,500 partners have accessed the promotional material. PHE now wants to understand more about what activities the resources were used in and what was achieved at a local level.

“Your answers will help shape future campaigns, and make sure we produce materials that you actually want and need. For example, we know you liked the .gifs we produced for Stoptober 2017, so we designed two for Health Harms in January,” said PHE.

PHE is looking for activity to include in a case study. “We’d like to showcase your impactful activity to inspire and motivate others. We’re looking for a few partners to become a case study – the more you tell us, the more we can tell others about your activity,” it explained.

It will also use the feedback to pull together reports for local areas detailing information such as website stats, app downloads, PR activity and search data. The information will be made available at either a national, regional or local level.

Responses to the survey should be submitted by February 27.
