SG Strategic Framework for Action

Update: 14 December

Thanks to Scottish Government for providing the following update:

Changes within Scottish Government

The Scottish Government Palliative and End of Life Care Team have recently moved Directorate and are now based in the Directorate for Health and Social Care Integration, rather than Person Centred Team in the Directorate for Healthcare Quality and Improvement. There has therefore been an adjustment in the chairing arrangements for the National Implementation Advisory Group on Palliative and End of Life Care (NIAG). As of December 2016 these responsibilities will transfer from Professor Craig White, (Divisional Clinical Lead within the Healthcare Quality and Improvement Directorate) to Geoff Huggins, Director of Health and Social Care Integration.

This move will align the palliative and end of life care work with the wider Health and Social Care Integration agenda, and will be helpful in supporting Health and Social Care Partnerships in the implementation of the SFA.

Clinical leadership is vital for the implementation of the SFA, and the policy team will continue to draw on that leadership from within Scottish Government and from those most closely involved in the delivery of palliative care.
