Transforming Roles programme: reports

These reports on the roles of nursing, midwifery and health professionals update stakeholders on the nursing professions' contribution to the wider transformational change agenda in health and social care in Scotland.


The Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) is committed to maximising the contribution of the nursing, midwifery and health professions (NMaHP) workforce and pushing the traditional boundaries of professional roles. The Transforming Roles programme aims to provide strategic oversight, direction and governance to:

  • develop and transform NMaHP roles to meet the current and future needs of Scotland's health and care system
  • ensure nationally consistent, sustainable and progressive roles, education and career pathways.


We produced a series of brief progress reports on our work relating to various nursing, midwifery and health profession roles.
