  • Global citizenship is our national core value. Staff from across all staff groups in NHS Scotland already make a significant personal and professional contribution to global health in low and middle income countries. This valuable work not only helps to reduce common challenges such as disease epidemics but provides mutual learning opportunities bringing proven benefits for our NHS staff and healthcare system.

    In June 2018, the NHS Scotland Global Citizenship Programme was launched with the main aims (a) encouraging, supporting and co-ordinating NHS Scotland staff and volunteers involvement in global health work and (b) supporting our international development commitment to our partner countries as set out in the Scottish Government International Development Strategy. A key tenet of that Strategy is to work in partnership with our partner countries, to harness and encourage the best of Scottish and in-country expertise in key areas like health that can benefit global development.

    This is the second national event for the NHS Scotland Global Citizenship Programme designed to bring those working in healthcare from across NHS Scotland, partners and stakeholders together to share in developments and best practice in global health work.

    The Conference is being delivered in partnership with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow (RCPSG) who published “Global Citizenship in Scottish Health Service” in 2017.
