Integration of health and social care is the Scottish Government's programme of reform to improve services for people who use adult health and social care services.

It will ensure that health and social care provision across Scotland is joined-up and seamless, especially for people with longer term and often complex needs, many of whom are older or disabled. This will make it easier and quicker for you to access the services and support you require and help you to live safely and independently in your own home for as long as possible. Health and Social Care Integration is all about putting people first and ensuring that services are tailored to meet the individual needs of service users and their families.

You won’t need to do anything differently – services will be more joined-up behind the scenes. Health and social care staff will work more closely to support individuals and deliver joined-up care in local communities across Forth Valley.
