Innovation is key to delivering a new model of healthcare that meets the challenges and expectations of modern society.
NHS Scotland faces the same challenges affecting healthcare systems around the world. Shifting demographics, growing demand and financial pressures mean new approaches to care are needed, delivering better patient care while simultaneously improving quality and efficiency, releasing savings through increased productivity.
Recent advances in technology also present huge opportunities to build more effective, fit-for-purpose, patient centered health and care services.
Sustainable improvements in care, health and value will only be achieved by a strong and continued focus on innovation, improvement and accountability across the whole health and social care workforce.
