Getting started with Care Opinion

If you’ve found yourself on this page, you’ll probably have received a link from your Care Opinion subscription manager locally or seen a colleague’s email signature, and want to know more.

Last year 2,700 stories were shared about health and care services across Scotland on Care Opinion.  These stories highlight the great care being delivered by services every day, as well as identifying opportunities for learning and improvement.

We want to see even more staff across health and care services in Scotland reading, responding to and sharing stories.  We want to tell you about Care Opinion, how to get the most out of it, help make sure you are getting stories about your service, give you some tips on responding to stories and much more!
