  • Planning with People: Community engagement and participation guidance - service user questionnaire

    Created: 27/08/2022, Updated: 29/08/2022

    Did you know that people living in Scotland have the right to get involved in the design and delivery of new health or social care services, and to comment on changes to existing services? 

    When it comes to designing or making changes to these services, it is important that NHS Boards, Health and Social Care Partnerships and Local Authorities listen to the views of people who might use them. The process of finding out your views is called community engagement. 

    In March 2021, the Scottish Government and COSLA published jointly Planning with People: Community engagement and participation guidance. The guidance encourages collaboration between NHS Boards, Integration Joint Boards and Local Authorities. It also sets out how people and communities can expect to engage with these organisations. 

    It is important that ‘Planning with People’ remains relevant; by sharing your views and opinions via this consultation you will help to improve the engagement process through providing essential feedback on your personal experiences.

    You do not need to read ‘Planning with People’ to take part in the questionnaire, but The Scottish Government does encourage you to look at the guidance if you would like to find out more about engagement.

    The consultation closes on 30 September 2022.
