NHS National Services Scotland (NHSNSS) has launched a new online survey gathering patient and carer views about radiology services in Scotland.
Radiology uses medical imaging (for example, X-ray, MRI, CT, ultrasound) to look inside the body to diagnose, treat and monitor injuries and diseases. The survey is part of a national project looking at the future of radiology services; responses will help find out what is working well and where improvements can be made.
The survey focuses on experiences of diagnostic and interventional radiology services in the last 12 months, including both outpatient and inpatient and planned and urgent care. The survey does not include experiences of radiotherapy or routine breast screening services.
NHSNSS is also undertaking online patient and carer interviews and discussion groups in January and February 2021 to get more in-depth views, and have asked people to get in touch if they would like to be involved.
The online survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete; the deadline for responses is Tuesday 5th January 2021.
