An independent panel is being set up to provide expert advice to ensure the Scottish Government’s named person service is workable.

The Getting it Right for Every Child (GIRFEC) Practice Development Panel will lead the development of a code of practice, statutory guidance and other support materials for people working with children and families.

It will be chaired by Ian Welsh, who is Chief Executive of the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland.

The Deputy First Minister has previously stated his intention to establish a GIRFEC Practice Development Panel with an independent chair and broad and relevant stakeholder membership. Further details about the panel’s membership and remit will be confirmed in due course.
