The Scottish Parliament's Health, Social Care & Sport Committee is planning an enquiry into healthcare in rural & remote areas of Scotland, and would like to hear your ideas and suggestions for topics they should focus on.  

Sharing your views will help MSPs understand the key issues surrounding rural and remote healthcare. The Committee will analyse the ideas that people put forward, along with ratings and comments on ideas, then produce a summary of the feedback which MSPs will use to inform planning for their future inquiry.

To participate, you will need to register online here: Once registered (you can select an anonymous username, if you prefer) you'll be able to share your ideas or rate and comment on other people's. The platform is checked regularly to ensure fairness.

If you would like support using the online platform, or would like to support a group discussion in your community, you can email the Participation and Communities Team at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  

The Committee welcomes written views in English, Gaelic, Scots or any other language, and the online platform provides automatic translation if required.
