Healthcare Improvement Scotland is the national inspection and improvement regulator. It works towards five key priorities: enabling people to make informed decisions about their care and treatment; helping health and social care organisations to redesign and continuously improve services; provide evidence and share knowledge that enables people to get the best out of the services they use and helps services improve; provide quality assurance that gives people confidence in the services and supports providers to improve; and making the best use of resources.
