Government Review

The Scottish Government is carrying out a review of the arrangements currently in place for investigating the deaths of people being treated for mental illness, personality disorder or learning disability.

As part of this review we want to hear from people who have experience of these investigations.  This includes:

  • family members, carers and friends
  • staff members who work for NHS Scotland, a local authority, a third sector organisation, a social care provider, or an independent healthcare provider

The review team would like to understand what does and doesn’t work well about these investigations.  People can share their views by completing one of the surveys below:

Family and carers survey:
