Value based health and care: action plan

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.


Realistic Medicine and VBH&C are fundamental in underpinning the way we reshape our health and care system. Fostering a culture of stewardship will enable delivery of sustainable care that meets the needs of the people we care for. Regardless of your role, or where you work, we hope that it gives you the agency you need to champion Realistic Medicine and deliver VBH&C.

We are not starting from scratch. VBH&C is already being delivered across Scotland. Now is the time to accelerate our efforts, implement these actions and deliver system-level results.
