Remit of the Scottish Health Survey Project Board


The Scottish Health Survey is managed by a project board which meets twice a year.  Previously there was a steering group and a technical working group.  These two groups have been merged to form the project board.

The Scottish Health Survey Project Board plays a key role in the governance of the Scottish Health Survey, alongside the SG Project Manager, Divisional lead/Information Asset Owner and a wider network of users.

The Board is responsible for making or agreeing strategic decisions about the survey.  This includes:

  • Discussing potential changes to the questionnaire and agreeing major changes such as new topics for inclusion or topics to be removed.

  • Agreeing the dissemination strategy for the survey.

  • Where appropriate, agreeing any major changes to the methodology of the survey or new modes of data collection.

  • Where feasible, supporting the Project Manager and contractor in efforts to improve response and minimise bias in the survey.

  • Agreeing appropriate action in response to fieldwork and other contract performance issues (non-contractor members).

  • Making decisions in relation to the procurement or extension of the survey contract(non-contractor members).

  • Providing input into the content of publications.

  • Providing a link to users including health boards and other local areas.

The membership of the board is as follows:

  • Neil White (Senior Statistician, Health & Social Care Analysis) CHAIR
  • Julie Landsberg (Statistician and Survey Manager, Health & Social Care Analysis)
  • Sarah Martin (Statistician, Office of Chief Statistican and Data Officer)
