Looking at this orthogonally, I was puzzled by 
the reference to England here and wondered whether
this reflected a common confusion between England
and the (unfortunately named) United Kingdom. 

Further search indicated that there is not only a 
Health Survey for England
but also a Welsh Health Survey 
and a Scottish Health Survey. 

I am unable to say to say whether the people of Northern 
Ireland are covered by something else. 

All this, by the way, has nothing to do with Chris' question.
