Parliament committee to examine Health and Social Care Partnership engagement with stakeholders

 
Are Scotland’s integrated Health and Social Care Partnerships doing enough to involve people who access support and services, the third sector and other stakeholders in the way they design future services?
 
This is the question at the heart of an inquiry launched today (13 February) by the Health and Sport Committee.
 
The committee is looking to gather views from people who access support and services, unpaid carers, third sector representatives and other stakeholders on a number of questions, including:
 
  • Do you know how and when you can get involved with the Integration Authorities to influence decision making?
  • Were you consulted in the preparation of the strategic plans or involved with the work of the Strategic Planning Group?
  • Have you been involved with the work of the Integration Authority following publication of the strategic plan?
  • Have you been involved with the work of the localities / what involvement would you like to have?
  • Do you think your involvement with the Integration Authority has had an impact on decision making?
  • What could be done to improve the communication from the Integration Authority?
  • What could be done to ensure greater collaboration and engagement in the decision making process of Integration Authorities?
 
Do you have experience of engaging with a Health and Social Care Partnership, or views on any of these questions? If so, the ALLIANCE would like to hear from you in order to shape our response to the Committee.
 
To share your perspective, please get in touch with Christopher Doyle, Policy and Information Officer via christopher.doyle@alliance-scotland.org.uk or call 0141 404 0231.
 
The inquiry will run until Wednesday 8 March.
