Sets out the actions to support health and care colleagues practise Realistic Medicine and deliver value based health and care, by focusing on outcomes that matter to people, optimising use of health and care resources, and contributing to a more sustainable health and care system.

Collaboration & Governance

Delivery Partners

Implementation of this VBH&C Action Plan requires ongoing collaboration to ensure we have the data, analytical skills, education, training, measurement, and improvement support we need. We will continue to be guided by our governance structures.

Our key delivery partners will be crucial to implementing VBH&C effectively. They include:

In addition, we will make the most of our ongoing relationships with key collaborative partners including:

  • The Public
  • NHS Partners, including NHS Wales
  • Third Sector Organisations
  • Research and Industry Partners

Governance & Evaluation

This action plan sets out the steps we will take to support people to deliver VBH&C across our health and care system and help realise the 2030 Vision. We intend to demonstrate impact and improvement on an iterative basis. We will use the measures of success indicated throughout this plan to inform a measurement framework and delivery timelines.

As work progresses and further innovations are developed, we will be able to describe medium-and long-term measures of success, which reflect the evolving health and care landscape.

We are committed to continuing with the recovery and renewal of the NHS and Social Care systems from the pandemic, including focusing on building a more sustainable NHS and a National Care Service fit for the future. We will drive recovery and reform of services through our strengthened Delivery Plan process with NHS Boards, across the breadth of Scotland at pace.

Our work to support health and care colleagues to deliver VBH&C makes a vital contribution to the Care and Wellbeing portfolio - the overall strategic reform policy and delivery framework within Health and Social Care in Scotland. As such we expect the delivery of VBH&C to support the major health and care reform programmes designed to improve population health, address health inequalities and improve health and care system sustainability.
