ABSTRACT
The article offers information on how the National Health Service (NHS) in Scotland manages the medication use in the country. It says that the health care delivery depends on the 14 regional boards of the country eventhough it has health policy. It presents several functions of Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) in managing new medications such as issuance of guidance on the effectiveness of medications and enhancement of the financial planning of NHS board of directors.
