The survey is aimed at you if you work in public health or work towards achieving public health outcomes. It asks questions about your engagement with the internet and digital services; your perceptions about career planning and worker mobility; and the potential barriers to delivering a successful digital service for the public health skills and knowledge framework. 

The survey should not take more that 15-20 minutes to complete. It closes at the end of the day, Tuesday 10th January 2017.
