2011 Inpatient Experience Survey

The survey was sent to a random sample of people, aged 16 and over, who had had an overnight stay in hospital in Scotland between October 2009 and September 2010. The questionnaire and survey design are similar to those used for the 2010 survey.

A total of 59,341 questionnaires were sent out and 31,048 were returned, giving a response rate of 52 per cent. More information on the survey design, response rates and methodology can be found in the Technical Report.


PLEASE NOTE: The results in these reports are based on the weighting methodology applied at the time. Full details of this methodology can be found in the Technical Report below. The weighting methodology used was reviewed ahead of the 2018 survey. It has not been possible to backdate the 2011 results and so they are not directly comparable to results from the 2018 survey.
