Your health matters, can you help yourself and others?

Tea and sympathy have their place - but sometimes you really need to see a doctor.


The University of Exeter is conducting a survey on fishermen’s health


How easy is it to get a doctor’s appointment when you need one?





  • Fishing is a physically and mentally demanding job – your biggest asset is your health!

  • This study aims to collect data to help improve healthcare services for fishermen, and ultimately benefit your health.

  • Your responses are important to help us understand how fishermen engage with healthcare.

  • Your responses will be analysed anonymously – you do not have to give your name.
