Changing Attitudes to Healthcare – White Paper

Changing Attitudes to Healthcare White Paper

Equipsme comissioned research by Consumer Intelligence from June 2020 to October 2021.

Covid-19 has been the biggest health crisis to hit the world in over a century, and it is set to continue to be a backdrop to our daily lives indefinitely.

In the wake of its devastation on both systems and lives, change is brewing.

We’re starting to see a revolution in attitudes to health - and subsequently in attitudes to health care.

We commissioned research to look at the long-term impact Covid has had on health awareness, concerns, and priorities. This white paper report tracks those changes.

Attitudes to health are changing

65% of people are more conscious of their health than they were before the pandemic, and 60% worry about their own and their family’s health.

Attitudes to the NHS are changing

69% of people are worried about growing NHS waiting lists, and its ability to treat them – with many reporting they’ve found it harder to see their GP, or that they’ve had hospital treatments delayed.

Attitudes to workplaces are changing

1 in 4 people feel their employer doesn’t care about their health, and over half don’t think their employer has been good to them in the last year. As a result, demand for benefits are on the rise.

Attitudes to Private Medical Insurance are changing

57% of the workforce would pay for private medical insurance, with the number of people interested doubling between June 2020 and October 2021.
