Fifty-seven per cent of British people are optimistic about the future of health and half of us are willing to use healthcare-related technology – but still have serious questions about some developments. These are among the key findings of the STADA Health Report 2019, a major study into attitudes to healthcare, both now and in the years to come.
As part of the report, 2000 people aged between 18 and 99 in the UK and a further 16,000 respondents from eight other European countries – Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Russia, Serbia and Spain – shared their opinion on health-related matters of the future.
