As work continues to restart NHS services as well as many health and social care research studies, NHS Research Scotland wish to capture views, concerns and feedback from patients participating in research. These views are crucial and will help inform our work to restart research.

The survey consists of 10 questions and will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.
