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.
