About the survey

You can help improve the accessibility of the NHS Couch to 5K app for people who are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus by completing our new user research survey.

We want to see how well the NHS Couch to 5K app works for people who are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus. This work will help the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) to make decisions about how they can make their app more inclusive and accessible in the future.

We want to hear about your experience with the NHS Couch to 5K app or, if you haven’t used this app yet, with other apps that support you in running or doing exercise in general.

Who can take part?

Take part in BSL

If you can answer “Yes” to any of the questions below, we’d love to hear from you:

  • Do you use any running or exercise apps?
  • Have you tried the NHS Couch to 5K app before? 

You don’t need to have used the NHS Couch to 5K app to take part. We are interested in your general opinion and experience with running or starting to run.

What are the benefits of taking part?


You will help to improve the future generation of the NHS Couch to 5K app for people who are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus.
