Section: Policy into PracticeType: News Item Date Published: 4th April 2019

New plan proposes tweaks to Integrated Joint Board operations to support older people's involvement.

A Fairer Scotland for Older People (this link will take you away from our website) is the result of a Scottish Government engagement process with older people across Scotland through the involvement of many of the organisations that support them.

The framework (this link will take you away from our website) outlines a number of actions related to health and social care integration including proposing actions such as:

  • Engaging with the Older People’s Strategic Action Forum on integration.
  • Revising statutory guidance on local community engagement and participation by the end of 2019.
  • Ensuring carers and other representatives on IJBs are supported by local partnerships to meaningfully engage by paying reasonable expenses and receipt of papers far enough in advance to allow for meaningful engagement.
