The Scottish Improvement Science Collaborating Centre (SISCC) brings together researchers, NHS and social care staff, policy makers, educators, and the third sector from across Scotland and internationally to strengthen the evidence base for improvement science. It will focus on evidence for large-scale, sustainable change and will add value to existing investment. It will deliver a step change in improvement knowledge and practice in health and social care, and maximise benefit for Scotland and beyond.
Led by the University of Dundee and NHS Tayside, the SISCC is a collaboration between eight universities and nine NHS Health Boards, national NHS and social care organisations, voluntary and community groups, local authorities and the Scottish Government.
This SISCC is funded by a five year £3.75 million grant from the Scottish Funding Council, Chief Scientist’s Office, NHS Education Scotland, and the Health Foundation, with matched investment from partner organisations.
At the heart of our work is an ambition to develop and promote evidence-based, integrated, sustainable ways of working in and across health and social care that consistently focus on the needs of service users, carers and the public as the priority.
