Healthcare Improvement Scotland has recently provided this Gallery: The benefits of clinical engagement.
I would like to take this opportunity to put on record my appreciation of the individuals who have demonstrated the ability to listen, share and be open. These are qualities which can only assist in achieving genuine clinical engagement.
Dr Denise Coia, Chair of Healthcare Improvement Scotland is invariably courteous and professional.
At a recent consultation event I was sitting at the table facilitated by Jacqui Macrae, Head of Quality of Care. I was enormously impressed by her ability to listen and to pull together a range of views.
I have met Richard Norris, Director of the Scottish Health Council, a number of times. He is exactly the right man to hold this important post: his wide experience and his open manner are a credit to the organisation.
