Report: NHS Scotland 2012-2017 Strategy
In setting out our strategic direction for the next five years, our commitment is to focus on the biggest health challenge facing Scotland – our enduring and growing health inequalities gap. A Fairer Healthier Scotland identifies what NHS Health Scotland will contribute to reducing this gap by using our expertise in improving the evidence to strengthen the case for change. Evidence which increases our understanding of the causes and effects of health inequalities and the policies that will make the greatest difference; and which increases the effectiveness of health improvement measures across all of our public services.
