Consultation on the role of the Scottish Health Council

Consultation on the role of the Scottish Health Council: Strengthening people’s voices in health and social care

The Scottish Health Council is a key part of Healthcare Improvement Scotland and plays a leading role in ensuring that NHS Scotland listens to the views of people and communities, and that it acts on those views.

It is well-recognised that services can only improve when they are informed and shaped by people who use those services, their families and carers, and local communities.  Whilst there has been progress made in engaging people, we believe there is more that can be done to improve people’s experience of engagement, whether at individual, community or national level, and to demonstrate more clearly the difference that their engagement has made.
