About

Healthcare Improvement Scotland is a health body formed on the 1 April 2011

It has been created by the Public Services Reform (Scotland) Act 2010 and marks a change in the way the quality of healthcare across Scotland will be supported nationally.

Our vision

Our vision is to deliver excellence in improving the quality of the care and experience of every person in Scotland every time they access healthcare.

Our purpose

Our purpose is to support healthcare providers in Scotland to deliver high quality, evidence-based, safe, effective and person-centred care; and to scrutinise those services to provide public assurance about the quality and safety of that care.
