About the survey

The 5th Inpatient Survey was sent in January 2016 to random sample of people aged 16 years or older who had an overnight hospital stay between April and September 2015. The survey, which is conducted by post, covers six specific areas of inpatient experience: admission to hospital; the hospital and ward; care and treatment; hospital staff; arrangements for leaving hospital; and care and support services after leaving hospital.

The survey questionnaire was reviewed with input from patients and a wide range of stakeholders including NHS Boards. For more information on the 2016 inpatient survey and survey materials please go to: Inpatient survey 2016
