Gathering views from people about transplant services

We were asked by NHS National Services Scotland to gather views from patients who had received a transplant, focusing particularly on the transplantation process, aftercare experience and the impact of receiving a transplant on the patient, family and carers.

This report describes our approach and summarises the feedback from people who took part. It highlights some of the recommendations arising from the themes supported by the group discussions.

Gathering public views on transplant servicesOur local offices organised and facilitated five discussion groups close to where the majority of patients lived, in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Kilmarnock and Kirkcaldy. Face-to-face and telephone interviews were also conducted with people who were unable to attend a discussion group.
