The Scottish Government is carrying out a review of the arrangements currently in place for investigating the deaths of people in hospital for reasons of mental illness, personality disorder or learning disability. This includes people who have died by suicide.
As part of this review they 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 is keen for anyone who has had this experience to help them understand what does and doesn’t work well about these investigations. They invite people to share their views by completing one of the surveys below.
