NHS Scotland

The publicly funded healthcare system in Scotland, which is run by the Scottish Government Health and Wellbeing Directorate and is politically accountable to Scottish Parliament, which provides free healthcare to people in Scotland. NHS Scotland employs nurses, midwives, health visitors and doctors; Scotland also has many practitioners, including GPs, dentists, opticians and community pharmacists who work as independent contractors. They perform a range of services for the NHS in return for various fees and allowances. The Scottish Government Health Directorates provide the central management of the NHS, heading a Management Executive that oversees the work of 14 area NHS boards.
