The Scottish Association of Community Hospitals (SACH) led by Dr Alastair Noble held a conference with doctors in training and clinical staff in order to generate interest in continuing the work of the Association. The conference launched their report Past,Present & Future “Keeping it Local” A Reflection on the Role, Achievements, Challenges and Lessons of SACH; Sharing the Learning on a Model of Care Close to Home (Tucker 2015). The presentation on the report is available to upload, as is the executive summary. The policy document Route Map to 2020 Vision summarises some of the excellent achievements that have been secured through a focus on improving quality in our health and care services and sets out priorities.
