NES Local Delivery Plan 2017-18


The NES Local Delivery Plan (LDP) for 2017-18 sets out our vision and priorities for the year ahead. It supports the actions set out in the Scottish Government's Health and Social Care Delivery Plan published in December 2016.

Our LDP focuses on the important contribution we can make to transformational change and how we will support the ‘Health and Social Care Delivery Plan’ by developing a workforce that is responsive to the changing demands on health and care services.

The Plan presents an opportunity for us to improve and enhance the employment experience, and to release capacity for patient care.

It sets out a framework within which we will continue, and accelerate our work across health and social care to support and engage staff; through providing access to excellent educational opportunities; sharing resources across sectors; and working with the higher and further education sector to achieve NHSScotland priorities.
