Often working behind the scenes, we make a difference to people across the country. Our Health Support group works with NHS Boards to help them deliver the best possible front-line services. Through our Business Support group, we provide expert advice and co-ordination to other Boards to help them manage their business in as efficient a way as possible.
Our services touch almost every area of healthcare and impact on the health of people across the country.
Without our national blood transfusion service, the NHS would be unable to function - the blood, tissue and bone products we collect are used throughout the NHS.
On a daily basis we monitor hazards and exposures affecting people's health and provide guidance on tackling healthcare associated infections. We co-ordinate health protection activity across Scotland and provide advice for travellers to the far reaches of the globe.
Our investment in specialist services enables people to get national access to treatment for rare conditions which couldn't be delivered as effectively at a local level. We co-ordinate screening programmes which help Boards identify people with cancer and other life-threatening conditions, helping save lives every day.
Finally, the data and analysis provided by our statisticians underpins not only the accountability and future planning of the NHS, but day-to-day decision-making.
