“2020 Vision”
 Our vision is that by 2020 everyone is
able to live longer healthier lives at
home, or in a homely setting.
 Integrated health and social care;
 A focus on prevention, anticipation and
supported self management;
 Where hospital necessary, day treatment the
norm and focus on getting people back into
their home as soon as appropriate, with
minimal risk of re-admission.
The Healthcare Quality Strategy for Scotland
 Person-Centred - Mutually beneficial partnerships between
patients, their families, and those delivering healthcare services
which respect individual needs and values, and which demonstrate
compassion, continuity, clear communication, and shared decision
 Effective - The most appropriate treatments, interventions,
support, and services will be provided at the right time to everyone
who will benefit, and wasteful or harmful variation will be eradicated.
 Safe - There will be no avoidable injury or harm to patients from
healthcare they receive, and an appropriate clean and safe
environment will be provided for the delivery of healthcare services
at all times.

The Importance of Primary Care
The foundation of the NHS:
Over 90% of interactions with healthcare
start and finish in primary care.
Key to addressing:
 Inequalities in health and care;
 Access to health (and often social) care.
The Challenges
 Demographic shift to an ageing population
 Ageing brings a more multi-morbid population (two or more
long term conditions)
 Worsening health inequalities
This matters because:
 Living with multiple conditions is the norm rather than the
exception for many people. It is associated with poorer quality
of life, more hospital admissions and higher mortality, and
significantly worsens the impact of deprivation.
 We still tend to design healthcare along single disease
Multimorbidity is common in Scotland
– The majority of over-65s have 2 or more conditions, and the majority of over-75s
have 3 or more conditions
– More people have 2 or more conditions than only have 1
There are more people in Scotland with
multimorbidity below 65 years than
Particularly true in more deprived areas
There are very few generalist hospital services for the under-65s
People living in more deprived areas in
Scotland develop multimorbidity 10 years
before those living in the most affluent
