Do I get anything extra for agreeing to the health measurements?

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer any financial payment for your health measurements. As always, everyone on the study team, and those who use the data, are extremely grateful for the time you have given to the study over the years. Without you we just couldn’t do it.

If you agree to a nurse visit, the nurse will be able to provide you with measurements of your height, weight, blood pressure, grip strength, and body fat percentage. These are all indicators of present and future quality of health.  If you consent to providing a blood sample we can also provide you with your glycated haemoglobin and cholesterol levels.   We can also send these results to your GP, if you give us permission.
