Gathering views

Gathering views

We have, on behalf of the Scottish Government and Healthcare Improvement Scotland, gathered the views of people using health and care services, members of the public, carers and community groups on a variety of health-related topics.

Our reports summarise how we went about this, what we found, and how people's views had an influence.

Through our network of engagement offices we are able to collate comments and experiences from across Scotland in order to give a national perspective. Our staff use a range of methods - including focus groups, interviews, questionnaires and events - to gather people's views. We regularly work with local third sector organisations and community groups to reach people, especially those who are often excluded from consultations.

If you would like to be part of a local gathering views exercise, please contact your nearest engagement office.
