Equality and diversity

NSS supports Scotland's health by being responsive to the principles of equality and diversity.


We aim to meet the needs of the public and stakeholders who represent the diverse communities of Scotland.

Equality and diversity is about the recognition of difference in its widest sense.

In delivering our services we seek to eliminate discrimination, advance equality and foster good relations.

We ensure that our staff are professionally and culturally equipped to meet the individual needs of donors, patients, public, customers and stakeholders.
