As of September 2021, we are implementing 2 separate prize draws for follow-up questionnaire completion, each draw having a single prize of a £100 Amazon voucher. The draws apply to all individuals who consented and participated in (a) the 6-month questionnaire and/or (b) the 12-month questionnaire. This will not affect the previously implemented voucher reimbursement (£5 Amazon voucher per completed time-point, maximum £15 per person for completing all three questionnaire time-points).
WITHIN Study: 2x £100 Amazon voucher prize-draw terms and conditions:
- Participation in the research is based on voluntary informed consent provided.

- All participants who have previously completed their baseline 0-month AND either (a) their 6-month or (b) their 12-month follow up questionnaires will be entered into the (a) 6-month prize draw pool or (b) 12-month prize draw pool. Participants who complete all three time-points will be entered into both prize draws.
