ISBN: 9781787813502

This draft plan sets out our vision for driving improvement in the care, treatment and support available to people living with neurological conditions – and their carers - in Scotland. Our Vision is that everyone with a neurological condition will be able to access the care and support they need to live well, on their own terms. We are consulting on the draft plan, and the commitments it contains.

Executive Summary

Our aims are to:

•Ensure people with neurological conditions and their carers are partners in their care and support

•Improve the provision of co-ordinated health and social care and support for people with neurological conditions

•Ensure high standards of effective, person-centred, and safe care and support

•Improve equitable and timely access to health and social care and support across Scotland

•Build a sustainable neurological workforce for the future

We will meet these aims through 17 commitments which we have identified for implementation.
