Better Health, Better Care ‘ [To]…improve the way in which we engage with children, young people and the people who care for them and ensure greater involvement of the most vulnerable and seldom heard groups. Third Sector organisations have well established networks and connections across these communities and can play a vital role as partners in ensuring that our health services are fair for all… The value-added contribution of Scotland’s network of voluntary and community organisations is already significant, but more must be done to foster this important partnership. NHS Boards are required to work with local Third Sector organisations to understand and develop the potential contribution they can make to improving the effectiveness of health improvement and health care planning and delivery.’ Scottish Government 2007
