We are the national healthcare improvement organisation for Scotland and part of NHSScotland. We support health and social care providers in Scotland to deliver high quality, evidence-based, safe, effective and person-centred care; and to provide public assurance about the quality and safety of that care. We work with those who provide care in hospitals, GP practices, clinics, NHS boards and with patients, carers, communities and the public.

On the 1st April 2016, we launched our new improvement offering which supports Health and Social Care Partnerships and NHS Boards to design and deliver services that better meet the changing needs of people in Scotland. This is an exciting new development that brings together three existing and complementary health and social care improvement teams into one new integrated improvement hub.

The Improvement Hub is currently developing a range of new approaches to support improvements in health and social care in Scotland. Partners across the system – Integration Authorities, Third Sector, Independent Sector, Housing and NHS Boards – are seeking good quality, timely improvement advice and support to help develop new ways of working that will make a real difference to every service user.
