Complete the EEAST and UEA sleep survey

Alarm clock

EEAST Wellbeing Hub and Research Support Services are collaborating with researchers in the School of Health Sciences, University of East Anglia (UEA), to learn more about how you sleep, how your working patterns affect your sleep, and any knock-on effects this may have on your health and wellbeing.

As this is such an important subject for everyone, especially those working shifts, or under continuing pressure, the Wellbeing team are developing some tools and information to support sleep hygiene too at EEAST, and welcome the chance for you to feed into the research which will ultimately inform what they do too.

This is the first time such a study has been done within the UK ambulance setting, and is part of a research programme being run by UEA to understand how organisations manage fatigue at work and whether interventions, such as digital health tools might be used to improve your sleep.

The UEA team, which includes paramedics who have worked at EEAST, have developed a survey that will ask questions about your sleep and things that may influence your sleep. The survey will be launched next week, and you should receive it as a link in an e-mail. It is for all EEAST employees, not just clinical staff, and we very much hope that many of you will take part in this survey.

If you do take part, you will have the opportunity to be entered into a Prize Draw to win one of thirty prizes, each of which is a £10 shop voucher (Love2Shop).

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Dr Lucy Clark at lucy.v.clark@uea.ac.uk or 01603 597695.
