"The Schools Health Education Unit has been a unique inspiration to all of us. For me, as I have worked in the many different areas of the NHS, the SHEU, its principles and your determination have always been a cornerstone in what a health promoting service should be about."

I would just like to say thank you very much to Angela, yourself and all of the SHEU team for making the [survey] so successful. The survey has been well received and we are using data in new ways to help support work on local Public Health priorities.

"...the only question to cause a problem was 'has everyone got a pen?" Supervisor's notes following a school survey

I think the HRBQ is an absolutely wonderful, informative tool and I am keen to really encourage schools/other relevant partners (as appropriate) to utilise this invaluable data to encourage voice of the child, and subsequently contribute to shaping priorities and services.

We were all very impressed with the spreadsheet and can see that an incredible amount of work has gone into creating this!

Many thanks to you and your team for turning this around so quickly.
We really appreciate it, and also your extra support with the administration this time.
