Scotland consults on quality priorities for new healthcare strategy:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Scotland has unveiled proposals for improving healthcare services and preventive health policies. The document Better Health, Better Care, presented yesterday by health and wellbeing secretary Nicola Sturgeon, is the basis of a 12-week consultation on the priorities of NHS Scotland. They feature plans to reduce inequalities, including new waiting times targets. An action plan is to be unveiled by the end of this year. Healthcare is set to become, Clinica suggests, one of the key areas of social policy that Scotland will use in the emerging debate on potential national independence, to exemplify the success of devolved government.
