Sustainability and Seven Day Services Taskforce Interim Report


Approach to taking forward this work

The approach we are taking to this work is to:

  • Define what we mean by seven day services
  • Baseline/map current service levels across a number of clinical areas
  • Define the requirements for seven day services in those areas
  • Identify the steps needed to ensure sustainable seven day services across NHSScotland.

The work of the Taskforce to date has focussed primarily on the first two tasks. Drawing on those findings we now propose to consider the remaining tasks and develop a programme of work to support this.
