Purpose The main purpose of NSD is to ensure the provision of high quality, effective, specialist health and screening services to meet the needs of the population of Scotland. Vision NSD seeks to be valued as a trusted partner within NHS Scotland that enables and supports transformation in the health and wellbeing of all the people of Scotland.
