Below are some key points from the survey
- More than 800 people responded to the Covid Choices survey this summer.
- Fear of catching and becoming seriously ill with COVID-19 outweighed concerns about existing health conditions.
- A lack of trustworthy information and conflicting guidance also emerged as key concerns and barriers to seeking appropriate medical help.
- Almost one in three people who responded had delayed care
