NHS Education for Scotland

A skilled and sustainable workforce for a healthier Scotland

What we do

Having the right numbers of trained staff - in the right place, at the right time - is key to delivering better health and better care.

We have a national role in undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing professional development. Our mission is to provide education that enables excellence in health and care for the people of Scotland.

Our role has grown to meet the increasingly challenging workforce pressures faced by health and social care. We are working with partners in areas such as attraction, recruitment and retention, improving the employment experience, and organisational and leadership development.
