This report explores the differences in self-reported experience of people who responded to the Inpatient Experience survey 2016

Executive Summary

This report explores differences in the self-reported experiences of different groups of people based on the 2015/16 Scottish Inpatient Experience Survey.

Over 17,000 people took part in the survey which included a range of questions covering topics such as accident and emergency, care and treatment, staff, leaving hospital and care and support at home. It also included a number of “About you” questions, which provides information about the personal characteristics of respondents.

Of the characteristics analysed, self-reported general health, those with pre-existing health conditions, and age are most often associated with differences in reported care experience, being significant for over 80 per cent of the 80 questions analysed.
