UNISON's manifesto for Scotland's public services

Conclusion

Scotland has begun the process of developing its own public service model. In continuing to develop we should aspire to excellence.We must look outward in our search for inspiration. Other small states have much to teach us but public services should be based on an ethos and principles that are embedded in Scottish culture not markets. The key to this approach is a belief that we should be treated as partners who have a real say in shaping our public services. If we are citizens not consumers exploited for private profit, then Scotland can be a world leader in public service provision.

UNISON's Revitalise principles are:

Democracy

- accountability and the meaningful involvement of users and staff, rather than markets, will provide the services the public want.

Investment

- essential not only to overcome past shortages but to fund ongoing innovation.

Fairness

- essential to build a fairer society both in the delivery of services and as a model employer.

Excellence

- should be the aim of all Scotland's public services. We should be the country others look to, to see what can be achieved.

Partnership

- creating the joined up working essential to face up to the complex challenges Scotland faces with out costly and disruptive reorganisation.

Scotland's Parliament is judged on the delivery of Scotland's public services. We need our parliament to
