We Asked, You Said, We Did

We Asked

We asked to hear people's views and experiences of Scotland's forensic mental health services. 

You Said

We received 103 responses. 56 were from organisations. 14 were from individuals who had experience of receiving forensic mental health services or who wanted access to them. 15 were from individuals supporting people who had experience of the services or who they felt should have access to them. 15 were from individual staff members working in forensic mental health services. 3 were received from interested individuals.  

We received over 200 other pieces of written evidence. 

As not everyone wanted, or was able to respond in writing, we did a series of visits to secure hospital wards and units to gather the voice of lived experience and operational staff. During these visits we spoke to nearly 300 people and collected their views. 

We Did

We are currently looking through all the evidence that has been provided to the review to identify the key themes and issues. Updates on this work will appear here.
