Healthcare Improvement Scotland
Health Improvement Scotland is one organisation with many parts and one purpose – to drive improvements that support the highest possible quality of care for the people of Scotland.
They work with services and the public to make seven key contributions to health and social care:
- Supporting people to have a meaningful say in how services are designed, delivered and experienced.
- Providing independent quality assurance that gives people confidence in the quality of services and helps providers to improve.
- Supporting providers to redesign services so that people in Scotland are able to live longer, healthier lives at home or a homely setting.
- Supporting services to reduce harm, waste and unnecessary variation in practice and outcomes.
- Providing evidence and knowledge that enables people to get the best out of the services that they use and helps services to improve.
- Supporting the use of data and information, alongside bespoke support, to help services to improve.
- Supporting leaders to create the conditions where quality will flourish.
Their broad work programme supports health and social care services to improve.
Health Improvement Scotland produces a quarterly newsletter for our involving people network. It's available to public partners, voluntary organisations and members of the public who are interested in our work.
