Dear Colleague or Stakeholder
Amended Argyll and Bute Integration Scheme –
The Carers Act (Scotland) 2016 will take effect from April 1st 2018. The Act requires all Health & Social Care Partnerships to provide additional support to unpaid and family carers, both adult and young carers. This is so that they may continue in their caring role for as long as they wish, whilst still being able to maintain their own health and wellbeing and live their own lives.
All Health & Social Care Partnerships are required to make prescribed changes to their Integration Scheme to indicate their intention to meet the requirements of the Act. You can find Argyll & Bute’s revised Integration Scheme here and the required changes are highlighted in red and/or marked by a track change comment.
The closing date for comments to the scheme is the 2nd March. Please send any comments to firstname.lastname@example.org by this date or write to Stephen Whiston Head of Strategic Planning and Performance at the address above.
