The Nuffield Trust has recently published “Learning from Scotland’s NHS”. This report was based on a select group of “30 senior leaders and experts from Scottish health and care”.
One of the primary “learning points” of this report was that Scotland should be considered as “the model of how to improve healthcare across the British isles”. What is not made clear in this report is that the improvement methodology that Scotland has embraced was introduced from the USA not by “30 senior leaders” but by three:
- Derek Feeley, President of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) and former Director General for NHS Scotland
- Professor Jason Leitch, who is a Dental practitioner, IHI Fellow and National Clinical Director of Healthcare Quality and Strategy (Scottish Government)
- Dr Brian Robson, IHI Fellow and Clinical Director of Healthcare Improvement Scotland
The “30 senior leaders and experts” would seem to be “marking their own homework”.
