Value Based Health and Care

Add to favourites

Delivering Value Based Health and Care will help ensure the long term sustainability of NHSScotland. With access to conventional medical and surgical therapies having been restricted for public health reasons, the need for personalised and value-based care is stronger than ever. The primary focus of our health and care system should be achieving the outcomes that matter to people focusing on their wellbeing, in both health, care and disease, at the lowest possible cost when building on people’s strengths and targeting our interventions on what really makes a difference. This is the essence of Value Based Health & Care (VBH&C).
