THE ANNUAL REPORT OF NHS EDUCATION FOR SCOTLAND

WELCOME TO SUPPORTING OUR WORKFORCE

THE 2016-17 NHS EDUCATION FOR SCOTLAND ANNUAL REPORT

At NHS Education for Scotland (NES), we believe that education is a force for positive change, supporting health and care services through a well developed workforce, with the right skills and behaviours to provide new models of care which cross traditional public service boundaries.

As the national training and education body for NHSScotland we have a key remit in supporting the whole service, in addition to our own workforce, to deliver the Scottish Government's Everyone Matters: 2020 Workforce Vision.

PERSONAL PERSPECTIVES

We care passionately about the resources we provide and the people who use them. Personal Perspectives illustrate the effectiveness of our resources in supporting the workforce in their current roles and future aspirations.
