CHEX response to Integration of Adult Health and Social Care in Scotland Consultation

CHEX has drafted a response to the Integration of Adult Health and Social Care in Scotland Consultation, and is now inviting the CHEX Network to contribute to this response. 

The consultation sets out proposals to inform and change the way that the NHS and Local Authorities work together and in partnership with the third and independent sectors. Proposals include changes to how adult health and social care services are planned and delivered, aiming towards a seamless experience from the perspective of the patient, service user or carer. It also outlines improvements to integrating health and social care services which are not limited to older people, but extend to all adult health and social care services.

The consultation asks for views on new legislation that will be introduced in order to enable the changes that Ministers propose.  View the consultation documents on the Scottish Government website.  

The draft CHEX response is available here and, if you would like to contribute to our final response please email your comments to Janet Muir by the 17th August 2012.

If you wish to submit your own response directly the closing date is the 11th September 2012.
