2 Strategic Framework
The NHS Reform (Scotland) Act 2004 requires NHSScotland employers to deliver the key strategic agenda of ensuring the fair and effective management of staff. A number of strategic workforce policies, initiatives and agreements are in place including those on best employment practice and policy, and workforce development and planning. Implementation of these policies, initiatives and agreements will support NHSScotland employers in meeting the requirements of the Staff Governance Standard and ensure modernisation of the workforce through pay, partnership and good employment practices.
Staff Governance is firmly established as one of the strands of the NHSScotland governance framework for which all Boards are held accountable.
