More information on the Strategy’s background is available below.  It was consulted on with a range of groups of people.  You can also find out more information on how you can get involved.

Background

The Glasgow City Integration Joint Board is required by the Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014 to produce a Participation and Engagement Strategy.  It sets out the principles and approach that the 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.

To support the implementation and monitoring of the Integration Joint Board’s Participation and Engagement Strategy that was approved on 31 October 2016, an action plan has been developed.  Locality Engagement Forums within each of the three localities that make up the Partnership have also been established.

Preceding the Participation and Engagement Strategy’s formal approval, a range of groups of people were consulted on it through a variety of methods (for example, online, email, a city-wide engagement event and locality engagement opportunities).  Consultation ended on 16 September 2016.

The consultation responses are available:
