At Audit Scotland, we support the improvement of public services by looking at how public money is spent, and whether public policies are achieving desired outcomes for individuals and bodies. We carried out extensive work recently on health and social care services in Scotland, which face a number of challenges from reducing budgets, increased demand, and an ageing population.

Check out the great video Audit Scotland prepared below to outline some of the challenges Scotland faces in health and social services, and recommendations for the responsible agencies on how best to address some of those challenges.

Excellent work, Audit Scotland!
