Healthcare Improvement Scotland worked with NHS boards to embed and spread the Value Management approach across NHS Scotland via the Value Management Collaborative. 

Value Management is a method to effectively manage the quality of the care that is delivered. 

The collaborative ran from November 2019 to October 2022.

Value Management aims to support teams within the health and care system to continuously improve their services, by providing coaching and using quality improvement skills and data about quality and cost.

The Value Management Collaborative supported six NHS boards to implement and spread a Value Management approach in their identified settings. During the collaborative:


Support for NHS boards 

Healthcare Improvement Scotland worked in partnership with NHS Education for Scotland and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement to support NHS boards through a collaborative that involved:

  • a capacity and capability programme to support the transfer of knowledge from national partners to NHS boards by facilitating modules and workshops with local improvement coaches and colleagues
  • a learning network which provided a structure for initial knowledge building and ongoing peer support and collaboration, including learning sessions and webinars, project surgeries, coaching support calls and site visits, and
  • co-design of a Value Management resource pack which provided NHS boards with resources to design and implement a team level method to managing quality within their service/system.
