NHS National Service Scotland (NSS) is a national NHS board working at the heart of NHS Scotland. NSS plays an active and crucial role in the delivery of national infrastructure services and solutions to improve the health and wellbeing of the people of Scotland.
In Scotland, there are over 20,000 primary care contractors including GPs, Dentists, Opticians and Pharmacists who support patient care and deliver vital services across the country. Hundreds of end users throughout the organisation require access to record, manage and share vital primary care contractor information using multiple, local and national IT systems which have become outdated, inefficient and inconsistent.
The successful delivery of the NPCCD IT programme has generated multiple benefits and improvements for end users across NHS Scotland. By implementing the NPCCD system on the Cloud (a major first for NHS Scotland) there are significantly faster response times and processes are now easier to follow.
