About us

All who deliver healthcare constantly strive to improve the quality of healthcare they deliver but they need support.

 

Our vision

Our vision is to deliver excellence in improving the quality of the care and experience of every person in Scotland every time they access healthcare.

 

Our purpose

Our purpose is to support healthcare providers in Scotland to deliver high quality, evidence-based, safe, effective and person-centred care; and to scrutinise those services to provide public assurance about the quality and safety of that care.

Our organisation has the focus and key responsibility to help NHSScotland and independent healthcare providers deliver high quality, evidence-based, safe, effective and person-centred care; and to scrutinise services to provide public assurance about the quality and safety of that care.

Healthcare Improvement Scotland is one organisation, but we are made up of different parts, some of which have their own identities and are recognised internationally.

We also support the work of the Scottish Medicines Consortium and take a lead role in co-ordinating the work of the Scottish Patient Safety Programme (SPSP).
