This report sets out how the chief officers of the integration authorities have developed their role in the Scottish health and social care

The King’s Fund has today launched a report  ‘Leading across Health and Social Care in Scotland – Learning from Chief Officers’ experiences, planning next steps’ based on its work with the Chief Officers Group over the last year.

The report sets out how the Chief Officers of integration authorities have developed their role in the Scottish health and social care system – a narrative of their approach, achievements and direction of travel. It draws on research and analysis by The King’s Fund on integrating health and social care and system leadership, as well as policy guidance from the Scottish Government.

The report goes on to suggest how Chief Officers can develop their role and the integration agenda both locally and nationally and discusses areas of strategic importance for the shared future ambition for the network of Chief Officers. The report concludes by making recommendations to strengthen and further embed their roles.
