Date lodged: 7 November 2018

To ask the Scottish Government whether each NHS board provided the Scottish Public Health Network with staffing figures for chronic pain services to inform its report, Health Care Needs Assessment of Adult Chronic Pain Services in Scotland, and, if so, in light of the comment in the report that staffing “was the biggest concern for most boards”, for what reason the figures were not included.

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 15 November 2018

The Health Care Needs Assessment of Adult Chronic Pain Service in Scotland report was commissioned by the Scottish Public Health Network (SPHN). This report’s methodology is a matter for SPHN, who can be contacted by using the following link: https://www.scotphn.net/contact-us/ .
