The NMN and NNN are managed by NHS National Services Scotland (NSS) on behalf of the Scottish Government and the 14 local NHS Boards in Scotland to support implementation of The Best Start and to encourage collaboration across maternity and neonatal care services to deliver the best possible outcomes for mothers, babies and families.
Published by the Scottish Government in January 2017, The Best Start details a five-year forward plan for the improvement of maternity and neonatal (perinatal) services in Scotland.
