Feedback and complaints

NHSScotland and the Scottish Government are jointly committed to developing a culture of openness and transparency that actively welcomes feedback as a vital source of information on what is and is not working well, and a powerful tool for improvement.

The Patient Rights (Scotland) Act 2011 [ 27] includes a new and specific right for people to complain, raise concerns, make comments and give feedback. The legislation also places a duty on the NHS to encourage, monitor, take action and share learning from the views they receive.' [ 28]

People were asked if they were given any information on how to provide feedback or complain to the hospital about the care they received:

  • almost two thirds ( 63 per cent) had not seen, or were not given, information

There was considerable variation between NHS Boards for this question, results ranging from 28 to 75 per cent.
