Women's health plan

The Women’s Health Plan underpins actions to improve women’s health inequalities by raising awareness around women’s health, improving access to health care and reducing inequalities in health outcomes for girls and women, both for sex-specific conditions and in women’s general health.

3 Our ambition

Our ambition is for a Scotland where health outcomes are equitable across the population, so that all women enjoy the best possible health throughout their lives.

Healthcare for women will be holistic, inclusive, respectful, centred around the individual and responsive to their needs and choices.

Women will be provided with consistent, reliable and accessible information empowering them to make informed decisions about their health and healthcare.

Healthcare for women with complex needs, including those with additional social support requirements, will be delivered innovatively, including jointly with third sector support where appropriate.

All professionals involved in delivering health and social care services will work closely together to improve care for women.
