Participation and Engagement Strategy
Glasgow City Integration Joint Board’s Participation and Engagement Strategy are now available.
More information on the Strategy’s background is available below. The views of a range of people were taken into account in developing the latest Strategy and a comprehensive Equality Impact Assessment was completed to identify any possible negative impacts of the Strategy on different sections of the community.
The Glasgow City Integration Joint Board is required by the Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014 to involve and consult with relevant stakeholders, including patients and service users, in the planning and delivery of services. The Integration Scheme between Glasgow City Council and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde requires that the Integration Joint Board produces a Participation and Engagement Strategy. The Strategy sets out the principles and approach that Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership will take to engaging with individuals, groups and communities in service planning and development for community health and social care services.
The responsibility for implementing and monitoring the Integrations Joint Board’s Participation and Engagement Strategy rest with the IJB Public Engagement Committee. One of the ways the Public Engagement Committee will do this is by monitoring the action plan within the Strategy to ensure actions are being progressed and keeping the Strategy under constant review.
Preceding the Participation and Engagement Strategy’s formal approval, a range of groups of people were consulted as part of the review of the previous Strategy and their views had a significant effect on the final version of the Strategy. For more information on this you can read the IJB report.
