SRI 2 is the revised and enhanced Scottish Recovery Indicator (SRI) launched in October 2011. It builds on the success of the original SRI introduced in 2007 which has been used by a range of services across Scotland.
Through listening to the experiences of those who have used the original SRI, we have reviewed and simplified the tool. SRI 2 is more compact and user friendly, whilst remaining as true as possible to the design, content and intention of the first version.

The SRI process has been shown to be encouraging and motivating, because it demonstrates examples of good practice and things to be proud of, as well as providing ideas for improvements.
It is recognised that staff and services are always busy and that time is a precious commodity, with this in mind, completion of SRI-2 helps provide service monitoring and reporting data and connects to the objectives of a number of other important policy drivers and guidance including:
SRI 2 is a framework and a process. The framework consists of a set of reflective statements centred on ten recovery indicators. These recovery indictors are based on research about what works in recovery e.g. ‘service is strengths based’ and ‘goals are identified and addressed’. The service reflects on its practice by considering data from six sources.
The framework of the recovery indicators and reflective questions is shown here to let you see how straightforward and logical the structure of SRI 2 is.
Completing the SRI helped provide evidence and confirm perceptions held about the service I worked in rather than relying on tacit knowledge.
We all felt it was worthwhile, it gave us clear direction of focus and we changed to our service as a result.
It provided valuable insights into the service, user opinions and what adds value for them in relation to service provision.
Audit tools usually identify deficits and do not recognise good practice, but the SRI is different, I’ve never felt more valued or motivated in my entire nursing career.
