Improving Health – What matters to you?

Healthier ScotlandWhat Matters to You?

The Scottish Government is inviting you to have your say on what a healthier Scotland should look like in the next 10 to 15 years and the steps that could be taken to make this vision a reality.

From August 2015 to Spring 2016 we will be holding a national conversation on improving the health of the population and the future of health and social care services in Scotland

The first part of this will look at what issues really matter to you. To help get the conversation started we have developed 3 broad questions.

  1. What support do we need in Scotland to live healthier lives?
  2. What areas of health and social care matter most to you?
  3. Thinking about the future of health and social care services, where should our focus be?

You can join the conversation in a number of ways:

  • Add a post or comment here or at the bottom of this page
  • Add a post or comment under a previous discussion topic
  • Follow us and drop your ideas on Twitter
  • Please use the twitter hashtag #healthierscotland in your tweets!
  • Like us and join the conversation on Facebook
  • You can email us your ideas at healthier@gov.scot
