To ask the Scottish Government what expenses scheme is in place for people who attend experience panel meetings, and what the timescale is for reimbursement.
Answered by: Jeane Freeman 20 September 2017
A new expenses process for the Experience Panels was set up over the summer. This expenses scheme covers any reasonable receipted expenses incurred in taking part in Experience Panel research (for example, travel, childcare and subsistence expenses). Following this set up phase we aim for members to receive payment within 2-3 days of Scottish Government receiving a completed form.
