Flu - have your say

The nights are starting to draw in, and the flu season is approaching.

For many people it's not an issue, but for those with heart conditions flu can be potentially fatal.

That's why heart patients of all ages are offered anti-flu jabs for free, but the fact is that not all of them go ahead and get one. The reasons why aren't exactly clear.

So the Department of Health, together with the British Heart Foundation, is currently running a special flu survey to discover why people don't take up their flu jab.

The results will inform a new campaign later this year to encourage people to have the jab. If you think you help take part in the survey then you'll find it online here

Your experience and answers could help to save lives...
