From ever-alert reader, Robert Martin, the above praise.
Only two weeks ago, we read:
In Westminster’s Health Committee, Dr Pelle Gustafson, CMO at Swedish Patient Insurer, responded with “Scotland”, when he was asked which country he would hold at the very top pillar with regards to patient safety.
Dr Gustfason said: “If you take all preventative work in regard to patient safety, I would say Scotland, I am personally very impressed with Scotland. I think in Scotland you have a long tradition of working, you have a development in the right direction and you also have a system which is fairly equal all over the place. You have improvement activities going on. So I am very impressed by Scotland”. He added that the UK could learn a lot from the Nordic countries in this area but also that the Nordic countries could learn a lot from Scotland.https://twitter.com/Dr_PhilippaW/status/1480995875937996801
And in 2019, the Nuffield Trust wrote:
All the UK nations would do well to follow the example of Scotland’s ‘Getting it right for every child’ [GIRFEC] framework, an overarching child health strategy which unifies and coordinates policies, services and programmes for children and young people.
