SUSTAINING AND DEVELOPING THE WORKFORCE

NHS EDUCATION FOR SCOTLAND ANNUAL REPORT 2017-18

Welcome to our 2017-18 Annual Report

At NHS Education for Scotland (NES), we believe that education is a force for positive change, supporting health and care services through a well-developed workforce, with the right skills and behaviours to provide new models of care which cross traditional public service boundaries.

As the national training and education body for NHSScotland we have a key remit in supporting the whole service, in addition to our own workforce, to deliver the Scottish Government’s Everyone Matters: 2020 Workforce Vision.
