This briefing sets out RCN Scotland’s position on the future of the NHS in Scotland ahead of a Parliamentary health debate on 2 March 2016.
Health and care services are creaking at the seams and while the need to shift care from hospitals to the community is acknowledged, little action appears to have been taken. Difficult decisions need to be taken the community care vision is to become a reality. Different ways of delivering services are needed, as is investment in nursing and other staff to ensure the NHS is put on a sustainable footing for the future whilst meeting the vision for care at home.
