Nursing Scotland’s Future Professional voices: practical solutions

Our Manifesto

Nursing Scotland’s Future – Professional voices: practical solutions is drawn from the voices of nurses and health care support workers across Scotland. It asks those standing for election to the Scottish Parliament to support five key issues:  

  • Decisions are made to shape health and care for generations to come, rather than focussing on short-term goals
  • A government-led workforce and skills impact assessment is carried out each time a new health or social care policy is proposed
  • Digital technologies are used to open up new, smarter ways of working for health care teams, especially those operating in the community
  • The pivotal role of senior charge nurses in leading safe, effective, patient-centred care is recognised, respected and properly remunerated
  • Scotland’s politicians champion better pay, terms and conditions for members of nursing teams, no matter their grade or where they work
