How We Are Changing

We support Scotland’s health by delivering shared services and expertise that help NHS Boards and other organisations to work more efficiently and save money. With increased pressure on budgets and the integration of health and social care, this is becoming a greater challenge than ever.

Our many services include procurement and logistics, IT consulting and solutions, statistical information and analysis, national payment processing, fraud deterrence and facilities and environmental advice.

As part of playing our part in public sector reform, we are working to make it easier for customers to do business with us and to understand what we can offer. One part of this is to simplify our structure. We gain the opportunity to streamline internal processes, build in greater internal flexibility and resilience and create efficiencies which lead to costs savings.

We have reduced from many divisions to six Strategic Business Units, arranged as follows:

Blood Tissues and Cells
Central Legal Office
Information Technology
Practitioner and Counter Fraud Services
Procurement, Commissioning and Facilities
Public Health and Intelligence
