  • National Masterclass Two - Highlights
  • Data Driven Decision Making
In international perspective, Scotland has set the benchmark in recent years for complete and capable systemic approaches to health care improvement at large scale. Its ambition, constancy, and (in many well document respects) results in improving the safety and quality of care at a national level are second to none. Improvement is a continual journey - new challenges will always arise - but Scotland’s track record and history of leadership commitment gives me confidence that it is and will remain a model for others."
