    NHS Education for Scotland

    We are a national special health board working in partnership with our stakeholders to provide education, training and workforce development for those who work in and with NHSScotland.

    We have a pan-Scotland role in undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing professional development and we maintain a local perspective through centres in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness with over 1,000 staff who work closely with our frontline educational support roles and networks.

    Our aim is to improve health and care through education and a significant proportion of our work focuses on the clinical workforce, with a large part of our funding used to pay for doctors and dentists in training and the training of those who train them.

    In addition we prepare professionals for practice in clinical psychology, pharmacy, optometry and healthcare science and we provide access to education for the nursing, midwifery and allied health professions and for healthcare support workers and administrative, clerical and support staff. We deliver CPD for each of the four primary care professional contractor groups; GP, dentistry, pharmacy and optometry.

    We also support public service reform and current policy priorities through education for improving quality, service re-design, leadership and management, mental health, dementia, older people and children and young people with a particular emphasis on enabling sustainable quality through the 2020 Vision.

    At a practical business development level ScotlandIS has built strong links across the industry helping large companies build their supply chains through access to smaller, innovative companies, and supported smaller companies to connect up with the majors.  A particular focus has been encouraging the public sector to buy from locally based businesses. 

    ScotlandIS has been the driving force behind the development of the ICT and Digital Technologies Skills Investment Plan, published  by SDS and now in the early stage of delivery.  This aims to reinforce and improve all aspects of the skills pipeline, from the schools curriculum to work place skills development.

  • The Health and Social Care Alliance

    The ALLIANCE is the national third sector intermediary for a range of health and social care organisations.

    The ALLIANCE has over 2,200 members including large, national support providers as well as small, local volunteer-led groups and people who are disabled, living with long term conditions or providing unpaid care.

    Many NHS Boards are associate members and many health and social care professionals are Professional Associates. Commercial organisations may also become Corporate Associates.

    Our vision is for a Scotland where people of all ages who are disabled or living with long term conditions, and unpaid carers, have a strong voice and enjoy their right to live well, as equal and active citizens, free from discrimination, with support and services that put them at the centre.

    The ALLIANCE has three core aims; we seek to:

    Ensure people are at the centre, that their voices, expertise and rights drive policy and sit at the heart of design, delivery and improvement of support and services.
    Support transformational change, towards approaches that work with individual and community assets, helping people to stay well, supporting human rights, self management, co-production and independent living.
    Champion and support the third sector as a vital strategic and delivery partner and foster better cross-sector understanding and partnership.
