POLICY: Review of NHS targets in Scotland

02 September 2016
Letter to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport outlining the key issues around changing targets culture in NHS Scotland.
The Health and Social Care Academy of the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE) and The Royal College of Nursing Scotland hosted a round table debate, chaired by Hugh Henry, former MSP for Paisley South, on changing our targets culture. We engaged with stakeholders across the third and public sectors, professional bodies and MSPs. Using the RCN's publication Measuring Success and the Academy's Five Provocations to prompt discussion, our debate focused on how to turn our aspirations for a new way forward into practical action.

With the Scottish Government’s commitment to a review of targets we shared some of the key issues addressed at the event and from our own discussions, which relate to the establishment of the review. These specific points on scope sit within the wider context of our individual publications on this issue.
