Health and Social Care Integration
At some point we are all likely to need support with our health and wellbeing so we can live well and independently at home or close to home.
An increasing number of people in Moray - just like the rest of Scotland - live with more than one health problem and need the support of family, friends, their community, health and social care services.
Often services don’t work together as well as they could and there are too many gaps.
Integration is the Scottish Government's ambitious programme of reform to improve services and outcomes for everyone who uses health and social care.
Here, The Moray Council and NHS Grampian have come together to form a new partnership which is governed by the Integrated Joint Board which has budget and decision making responsibility.
Joining up adult services to provide seamless, person-centred care at the right time and in the right place, will help individuals and their families live fuller lives and improve their experiences of care and support.
This will be most important for those with complex needs involving support from health and social care at the same time.
Making integration work must involve people who use services, those who support them and the wider community as well as staff and partner organisations.
This is the time for everyone to get involved and have their say in how change happens here in Moray.
