Published: | Older People, Public Engagement

Staff, service users, carers, community representatives and others came together at a South Locality Engagement Session on 26th February to discuss developments in older people’s health and care services.  

Stephen Fitzpatrick, Assistant Chief Officer, South Locality and Older People’s Services chaired the session which showcased examples of development and innovation within older people’s health and care. Presentations on Anticipatory Care Plans, Telecare and the Home is Best model were well received.  John Barber, Public Involvement Manager at NHSGGC updated the session on progress with the Moving Forward Together programme with several participants offering to meet with John to explore closer involvement.

There was time for round table discussions where the developments within Older People’s Services Transformation Programme were welcomed with a caveat to involve community and third sector organisations, service users and other stakeholders at all stages. 

A commitment was made to host a specific follow up session for local community and third sector organisations to explore closer partnership working.  This is being arranged for May 2019.

A report from the session is available by contacting Lisa Martin, Community Engagement Officer on 0141 427 8269 or Lisa.Martin@ggc.scot.nhs.uk
