Abstract

The goal of this paper is to situate Scotland's on-going goals in health research, and the current Scottish movement for independence, within the conceptual framework of imagined communities. The paper asks the questions: does Scottish health and healthcare form a part of Scottish identity vis a vis the rest of Britain? how do Scots perceive health and healthcare? and what implications might this have on heath related research? Answers to these questions are provided based on analysis of grey literature from before, and leading up to, the foundation of Scotland's parliament.
