Realising Realistic Medicine - Scotland's CMO annual report

Scotland’s Chief Medical Officer has published her second annual report, Realising Realistic Medicine.

Realistic Medicine aims to put the person receiving health and care at the centre of decision-making and creates a personalised approach to their care. It aims to reduce harm, waste and unwarranted variation, while managing risks and innovating to improve.

The report also contains a traditional snapshot of the health of the nation. In terms of adults (16 years and over) there has been relatively little change in physical activity levels over the last few years, and there continues to be a difference by gender. Whilst over two-thirds of men meet physical activity guidelines, less than 60% of women do. Additionally, just under one in five men have very low levels of activity, this is closer to one in four women.
