Health and Social Care Partnership

Argyll and Bute Council and NHS Highland in Argyll and Bute have brought together all health services and all adult and children/families social work services, as the Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP).

What does this mean?
In brief, GPs, hospitals, health workers, social care staff and others are going to work increasingly side-by-side to share information and take a much more co-ordinated approach to the way services are delivered.

Third Sector Input
The entirety of the Third Sector can have their views and opinions heard at their local Locality Planning Group meeting by making contact with the appropriate member of TSI staff.

Integration Joint Board (IJB)

An Integration Joint Board (IJB) is made up of representatives from NHS Highland, Local Authorities, the Third and Independent Sectors and those who use health and social care services.
IJBs are responsible for the planning, resourcing and operational oversight of health and social care services which are to be integrated under Health and Social Care Partnerships (HSCPs).
