How to Share Your Opinion About Care Services in Scotland

Have you had a particularly positive or negative experience with a health or care service? Don't keep it to yourself! 

Visiting the doctor or hospital can be a nerve-wracking experience, but receiving friendly and helpful service can make a big difference to how you feel after your appointment.

If you've got a doctor appointment coming up soon, find out more about what to expect when seeing your doctor.

By sharing your stories with Care Opinion you can feed back your thoughts - good and bad - to the health service, and you could spark changes to help improve the service for future patients.

How does it work?

  1. Share your story of using a health service with Care Opinion
  2. Care Opinion will send your story to the GP or hospital staff so that they can learn from it
  3. You might get a response to your story from the health service
  4. Your experience might help staff to change services in order to improve the service in future

Guy Brookes, an Associate Medical Director for Mental Health Services, says that reading about patients' experiences has helped to tailor their service to their patients' needs.
