CHSS Lived Experience Survey

Are you living with a chest, heart or stroke condition?  Or perhaps you have a loved one or a friend living with one of these conditions?  If so then you can help Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotland (CHSS) with our first ever Lived Experience Survey.

One in five people in Scotland are living with chest or heart conditions, or have had a stroke. The survey seeks the views of those who have been personally affected by these conditions, and we are asking you to complete the short questionnaire based on your own personal experience.

We want to know how your life has changed? What matters most to you?  What help and support has made the most difference?

The results will mean we can highlight to Scotland’s key influencers – such as the Scottish Government, local authorities and the NHS – what the reality of living with our conditions is like, and the issues that are most important to the people who are at the heart of what we do.   We will also be able to use your expertise to help us shape the support and services that we provide across the country.

Our mission is to create a Scotland where no life is half lived. We want people to live their lives to the full.
