The 2021 Health and Care Experience Survey is now live. It asks people across Scotland about their experiences of accessing and using their GP Practice, local healthcare services and receiving care and support services. 2021 Health & Care Experience Survey
The survey is run every 2 years and provides a national and local picture of the experiences of health and care services, including local GP practices, about people's experiences, helping to highlight areas of best practice and areas for improvement.
A random sample of people from each GP practice in Scotland have been selected to complete the survey and will be contacted in November 2021. They will receive a letter that will tell them how to complete the survey and answer some FAQs.
If you have been sent an invitation to complete this survey please do so as it can help inform your local and national services. We are keen to hear your experiences of your local health and care services.
The results will be published in Spring 2022 and will be available at NHS Board, Health and Social Care Partnership and GP practice level.
Taking part in this survey is voluntary and all responses will be completely confidential.
