HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE PARTNERSHIP – IS IT WORKING?

Review of Integration Scheme in Argyll and Bute

Argyll and Bute logoPeople across Argyll and Bute are being invited to have their say on updating the document that outlines how health and social care functions and services are provided locally.

In 2016, Argyll and Bute Council and NHS Highland brought all health and social care services together to form the Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP).  The main purpose of integrating these services was to improve the well-being of people who use them, particularly those whose needs are complex and involve support from health and social care at the same time.

A Scheme of Integration was subsequently agreed in 2016 which provides information about which health and social care functions and services will be delivered by the HSCP.  By law this must be reviewed every five years and submitted to the Scottish Government for approval.

The current scheme has recently been updated by the Council and NHS Highland and it is important that we also consult with the public and our stakeholders to seek their views on any proposed changes and to consider all views expressed.

The consultation will run for a period of six weeks from 9 December 2019 to 17 January 2020.  To view the revised scheme (together with a summary of the proposed changes) and give your views and feedback please visit the Council website:
