6 The 2007 Better Health, Better Care action plan for improving health and health care in Scotland set out how NHS Scotland's HEAT performance management system (based around a series of targets against which the performance of its individual Boards are measured) would feed into the Government's overarching objectives. The HEAT targets derive their name from the four strands in the performance framework: the Health Improvement of the population; Efficiency and Governance Improvements; Access to NHS services and waiting times; and Treatment and quality of services.
