UK Anti-Doping has launched a stakeholder survey to gain a better understanding of current knowledge and beliefs in relation to the UK’s anti-doping programme.
The survey has targeted those involved in sport – athletes, support personnel, National Governing Bodies and others connected with anti-doping – and their opinions will be used to help improve UK Anti-Doping’s services and to aid the development of future policies and strategies.
The initial responses have been positive and participation good. Nevertheless, further stakeholder participation is encouraged in order to gain the most representative view of current opinions towards anti-doping in the UK.
UK Anti-Doping Director of Communications and Education Nicola Newman highlighted the importance of this survey to the future development of the UK’s prevention and detection strategies.
She said: “This survey is an important opportunity for everyone committed to clean sport to work with UK Anti-Doping to develop effective and efficient shared programmes and services to protect the right of athletes to compete in doping free sport."
The survey, which takes approximately ten minutes, is available online here. All responses are confidential. The survey is open for completion until the end of September.
