NSS Discovery

NSS Discovery is a browser based system hosted by NHS National Services Scotland (NSS) and is only available via an N3 connection/ Scottish Wide Area Network (SWAN) connection.  The system contains indicators which have been predominantly aligned to 6 strands of the 2020 vision: Efficient, Safe, Timely, Person Centred, Effective and Equitable.


Indicators within NSS Discovery can be viewed from an NHS Scotland Board of Treatment/ Residence perspective and the comparative NHS Scotland health information contained within the system will enable NHS Scotland Boards to determine their performance against specific criteria compared to their peers (English and Scottish) and identify opportunities for driving improvement. It will also facilitate the identification of areas where deployment of resource could be targeted more effectively to better address local populations' health and care needs.
