Welcome to the website of Scotland's Local Supervising Authorities.

Scotland's Local Supervising Authorities represents all regional Health Boards. Each Health Board has the statutory responsibility for the Local Supervising Authority for Midwives practising within each of their Health Board areas.

The Local Supervising Authority Midwifery Officer (LSAMO) is professionally accountable to the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC). The Midwives Rules and Standards (NMC2012) www.nmc-uk.org govern the framework in which midwives and Supervisors of Midwives (SOM) meet the requirements of the Nursing and Midwifery Order 2001.
