The Health and Care Experience Survey (successor to the GP and Local NHS Services Patient Experience Survey) asks about people’s experiences of:
- accessing and using their GP practice and Out of Hours services
- aspects of care and support provided by local authorities and other organisations
- caring responsibilities and related support
The survey has been run every two years since 2009.
The survey and sampling approach have been developed by the Scottish Government in consultation with a range of stakeholders including NHS Boards, Integration Authorities and NHS National Services Scotland. The survey can be completed via a paper questionnaire and returned by post, online or by phone.
Interactive dashboards containing local level results are available on the Public Health Scotland website.
We have also published a blog about the changes to the survey.
More information about previous surveys is in our website archive.
