The Scottish Health and Care Experience Survey asks people about their experiences of their GP practice, as well as their local care and support services provided by their local council and other organisations. The survey was posted in early December 2015 to a random selection of people aged 17 and over who are registered with a GP practice in Scotland. Questionnaires could either be sent back by post, or completed online.
The survey and sampling approach was developed by the Scottish Government in consultation with a range of stakeholders including NHS Boards, Integration Authorities and NHS National Services Scotland. The 2015 survey is very similar to the previous one which was run in 2013.
