The results of the latest Scottish Inpatient Experience survey were released last month. The survey was sent to a random sample of people, aged 16 and over, who had had an overnight stay in hospital in Scotland between April and September 2017. Over 20,000 people responded to the survey. The survey covers six specific areas of inpatient experience: admission to hospital; the hospital and ward; care and treatment; hospital staff; arrangements for leaving hospital; and care and support services after leaving hospital.The survey found that the majority of hospital patients report a positive experience of their care, in particular their experiences with hospital staff. 2018 Survey Results, and comparisons, are available at the following reporting levels: Scotland Region, NHS Board, Hospital and Strata. Strata are defined in collaboration with each NHS Board and may be at site (hospital) level, a grouping of smaller hospitals or sub-site directorate or grouped specialties with a larger hospital.
- Results at Region, NHS Board and hospital levels are available via an online dashboard at: www.careexperience.scot.nhs.uk/Dashboard-2018/index.html.
