Welcome to the web
site of SHA Scotland
The SHA was founded in
1930 to campaign for a National Health Service. We are a
socialist organisation that is affiliated to and actively
supports the Scottish Labour Party. However, we do not
require our members to join the Labour Party.
SHA Scotland is committed
to a broad public health approach to health policy. Other
key principles include:
according to need and free at the time of delivery.
accountability at all levels
Users of health care
should be the focus of the service, not as ‘customers’
but as partners in care
Health care services
should be provided by high quality, directly employed
collaboration between health and social care
The capacity to
deliver an effective service
and ensure equal access to health care.
SHA Scotland meets four
times per year at Glasgow City Council Chambers starting at
