Welcome to My Survey

Thank you for participating in our survey. Your views are important to the development of sexual health services across Scotland. 
What is this survey about?

This survey aims to find out how men who have sex with men access sexual health services when living in remote and rural areas of Scotland. 

At Waverley Care, we provide support services to men who have sex with men across Scotland. Through our work, we have found that men who have sex with men living in remote and rural areas often have reduced access to sexual health services. For this reason, we are carrying out research exploring what sexual heath support men who have sex with men need when living in a remote and rural area, as well as what makes it easier or more difficult to access sexual health services.   

You can complete the survey whether or not you have accessed information, testing or support from Waverley Care’s services before. All of the questions are optional and you can skip any that you do not want to answer. 

Please note: this survey explores the experiences of men who have sex with men in remote and rural areas. By men, we mean anyone who identifies as a man regardless of the gender they were assigned at birth.
