Neurological care and support: framework for action 2020-2025

The framework sets out a vision for driving improvement in the care and support for those with neurological conditions in Scotland.

Visual Executive Summary

Our Vision - Everyone with a neurological condition will be able to access the care and support they need to live well, on their own terms.

We will do this by working nationally, regionally and locally with relevant organisations to:

  • Support people to manage their condition appropriate to their needs
  • Develop integrated and co-ordinated models of care and support with the Neurological Community
  • Support Integration Authorities and NHS to embed mainstream models of care that ensure personalised support in every case, with options over the level of control the individual and their family choose to take.
  • Test innovative ways of delivering health and social care and support
  • Improve our understanding of the neurological population in Scotland
  • Improve ways of measuring quality of care and outcomes via better data collection and use of outcome measures
  • Use technology to enhance care
  • Support participation of all members of the Neurological Community in research and quality improvement
  • We will meet these aims through a series of commitments and actions documented throughout the Framework and summarised within Annex A.
