Scotland UK Advisory Forum


Our Scotland UK Advisory Forum helps us make sure our regulatory approach takes into account the needs and the characteristics of the Scottish healthcare system.

The forum offers us an extra channel to engage with our partners and key interest groups in the country. Through the forum we share and discuss early stage views on policy development. This allows us to focus on medium and long-term priorities in dialogue with our partners in Scotland.

We also run UK Advisory Forums in Northern Ireland and Wales.
