Practical support to partnerships across Scotland to deliver better health, housing and social care services
A unique collaboration between NHSScotland, CoSLA and the Scottish Government, we were established in late 2004 to work directly with local health, housing and social care partnerships across Scotland and to provide practical support and additional capacity to partnerships.
We aim to work together, on a voluntary basis, with partnerships to achieve real, sustainable improvements that suit local needs and to find practical solutions which translate into positive outcomes for patients, users and carers.
These are the key action areas to support service developments and improvements:
- Care at Home
- Delayed Discharge
- Equipment and Adaptations
- Governance and Management
- Integrated Transport with Care
