Within Glasgow City, our vision for community health and social care services is to support people to flourish, work in partnership with people and organisations to transform our services for the better and engage with communities to improve health and wellbeing:
“Our medium- to long-term vision is that:
The City’s people can flourish, with access to health and social care support when they need it. This will be done by transforming health and social care services for better lives. We believe that stronger communities make healthier lives.”
Local Authorities and Health Boards are now required to plan and deliver community health and social care services together. This new way of working is referred to as ‘Health and Social Care Integration.’
Glasgow City Council and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde are jointly planning and delivering all of Glasgow’s community health and social care services – for children, adults and older people, including homelessness and criminal justice services. This is being done as the ‘Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership,’ which is directed by the Glasgow City Integration Joint Board.
