1. Foreword

The priority for Scottish Ministers is to improve people's experience of health and care services and the outcomes that services achieve. In particular, improving the quality and consistency of outcomes across Scotland, so that people and carers have a similar experience of services and support, whichever, Health Board or Local Authority area they live within, while allowing for local approaches to service delivery.

Legislating for national health and wellbeing outcomes[1] that apply equally across health and social care services in Scotland, under the Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014[2] ("the Act"), enables service users and carers to have a clear understanding of what they can expect in terms of improvements in their health and wellbeing.
