CHAPTER 3: CONCLUSION
THIS FIRST ACTION PLAN FOR NHSSCOTLAND'S HEALTHCARE SCIENCE WORKFORCE IS INTENDED TO ENABLE THE FULL UTILISATION OF THE SKILLS AND TALENTS OF ALL HEALTHCARE SCIENTISTS.
The plan seeks to empower healthcare scientists to champion science in the safe, accurate and effective use of diagnostics and treatments for NHSScotland patients, both now and for future NHS services.
Safe, Accurate & Effective requires action from the Scottish Government, from NHS Boards and from healthcare scientists. This tripartite responsibility is intended to establish greater engagement of healthcare scientists at all levels and to lay the foundations for a more responsive, valued and unified group.
