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

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

Keep up-to-date with HSCP news and decisions.

 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.

 Plans, Policies and Key Information

The Plan sets out how the HSCP will work to deliver its vision over the next three years. The Plan was developed with our communities, staff and service users following consultation at the end of 2015.

At the 5th August 2020 meeting of the Integration Joint Board, the Chief Officer agreed to delay the publication date for the 2019/20 Annual Performance Report until its meeting on the 11th November 2020 in exercise of the power granted to public authorities under the Coronavirus (Scotland) Act 2020 to do so. The staff who would have been involved in its preparation have been heavily engaged in supporting the Covid-19 pandemic response.
