Scottish Health and Social Care Plan

Last Updated: 1/10/2017

The Scottish Government has published its Health and Social Care Delivery Plan which emphasises an approach based on anticipation, prevention and self-management through creating a culture where health behaviours are the norm. In 2017, a new delivery plan will aim to reduce inequalities in physical activity across Scotland. In 2019, an NHS Physical Activity pathway will be embedded in all appropriate clinical settings to ensure that hospitals routinely support staff and patients to be more active, in schools to create quality activity opportunities and in the community through the delivery of 200 Community Sports Hubs. The full delivery plan can be accessed from the link below:
