Integration of health and social care is the Scottish Government's programme of
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.
