ABOUT THE AWARDS
The Scottish Government and Healthcare Improvement Scotland are pleased to deliver our first ever awards programme dedicated to Quality Improvement. These awards will celebrate and showcase the fantastic range of quality improvement practice that has been taking place across the length and breadth of Scotland to make services the best they possibly can be for women, babies, children, young people and their families in all aspects of their lives.
Quality Improvement is helping us to strengthen services and to give children the best start in life, with equal opportunities to thrive, learn and succeed. All of our improvement work aims to make services the best they possibly can be so we can reduce inequalities and get it right for every child.
We want to celebrate and recognise the hard work of practitioners in helping us to reach this goal.
