Health related actions

In the 2017-18 NHS, health actions information was collected in a number of modules including:

    • Use of medications module
    • Breastfeeding module
    • Specific long-term condition modules (additional condition-specific health actions questions were asked in each of the specific long-term health condition modules of the survey).

The 2017-18 NHS did not include other health related actions such as use of health services, taking time off work and private health insurance. These items were collected in the 14-15 NHS.
