Funded by The Scottish Government, Waverley Care have just launched a survey of the healthcare experiences of people living with HIV. In particular we are asking about the behaviour of staff in non-HIV specific settings, in relation to a patient’s HIV positive status.
We want to work towards a Scotland where all interactions in health settings for people living with HIV are good ones. So, we will be using the information people living with HIV give us in this survey to produce resources which will inform, challenge and inspire health professionals.
Survey participants can choose if they want to give us their name or to remain anonymous. All information will be treated confidentially and it is not expected that people name any specific individuals or locations. We want to create a healthcare environment where people don’t need to worry about disclosing that you are HIV positive, and when they do disclose, that they are always treated with respect.

For any questions, please contact Ali Irving at Waverley Care

The survey closes Friday 15th August 2014. Approval has currently been obtained from NHS Ayrshire and Arran, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and NHS Lothian for the survey to be promoted through their HIV clinics to patients.
We hope permission to be granted with other health boards soon.
