Health and Social Care Partnership


 Argyll and Bute Health and Social Care Partnership

Welcome to the Argyll and Bute Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP).

Argyll and Bute Council and NHS Highland in Argyll and Bute have brought together all health services and all adult and children/families social work services, as the Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP).

In brief, GPs, hospitals, health workers, social care staff and others are going to work increasingly side-by-side to share information and take a much more co-ordinated approach to the way services are delivered.

Our Vision

Our vision is to deliver services that help people in Argyll and Bute to live longer, healthier, happier and independent lives.

We would like to achieve this vision with you.

 How the HSCP works

Integrated Joint Board        

The Board is responsible for the planning, resourcing and overseeing the delivery of integrated services. Membership of the Board is made up of elected councillors, NHS Highland Board members and representatives from the independent and third sectors, patient/service users, staff and carers.
