Maintaining quality

People who use substances in Scotland may present to services for treatment and support. The quality of these services needs to be appraised, maintained, and where required, improved upon. SDF can assist with maintaining quality through two in-house teams:

The National Quality Development (NQD) team work with service planners and commissioners, and with services themselves, to improve services and the overall system of treatment in care in a local area.

The Workforce Development Programme (WDP) team work with service planners and commissioners, and with services themselves, to identify how training and workforce development can contribute to improving services and the overall system of treatment in care in a local area.
