Consultation on draft Health and Social Care Integration Scheme for Aberdeen

Consultation has opened on a draft Health and Social Care Integration Scheme for Aberdeen. This is a milestone in work to establish a Health and Social Care Partnership for Aberdeen City, which will bring together a range of health and social care functions provided by Aberdeen City Council, NHS Grampian, third sector and private sector organisations.

The Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014 requires Aberdeen City Council and NHS Grampian to outline, in an Integration Scheme, the arrangements to delegate functions and appropriate resources to ensure the effective delivery of those functions.

Judith Proctor, Chief Officer of Aberdeen City Health and Social Care Partnership, said:

"The Integration Scheme will form the basis for the establishment and operation of the Integration Joint Board for the Health and Social Care Partnership in the City.

"There will be consultations on further milestone documents, as we progress towards one of the most significant changes on how health and social care is provided, and we look forward to engaging with the citizens of Aberdeen on this important issue."

If you would like to have a copy of the consultation emailed or sent by post, please contact BJohnson@aberdeencity.gov.uk.

Comments and questions should be sent to KToshney@aberdeencity.gov.uk and marked 'Draft Integration Scheme'.

The consultation period will end on Monday, 2nd February, 2015, then all replies will be collated and the Integration Scheme will be amended, where appropriate.
