Tell us about the support your employers give you to follow a healthy lifestyle

Time is running out to take part in our survey on the support employers give nurses to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Nursing Standard also wants to hear from nursing staff about whether their own weight affects their ability to support patients.

NHS England recently argued that obesity among nursing among nurses undermines the ability of health staff to provide credible health advice to patients.

The survey also asks individual nurses about their weight. Research shows one in four nurses in England is obese, compared with 14% in other healthcare professions such as medicine.

We also want to what nurses feel the barriers are to achieving a healthy lifestyle, particularly over winter.

The survey closes on Monday 12 November.
