Angus Council, Dundee City Council, Perth and Kinross Council and NHS Tayside would be grateful to hear from a wide range of people about the Health & Social Care Integration Scheme.

The Public Bodies (Joint working) (Scotland) Act 2014 ( the Act) placed a duty on Local Authorities and NHS Boards to age Integration Schemes for their area.  An Integration Scheme is a legally binding agreement between a Local Authority (Council) and NHS Board that establishes and Integration Joint Board. The Integration Joint Board is then responsible for adult health and social care outcomes and promoting health and wellbeing for the people of Angus/Dundee/Perth & Kinross.  Angus/Dundee City/Perth & Kinross Councils and NHS Tayside are committed to driving forward Health and Social Care Integration.

The Integration Scheme must be reviewed every five years. A light touch review was undertaken of all Tayside schemes in September 2020. Acting on the required revisions was delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic until July 2021. Work on delivering the revisions has now been completed. This has been undertaken jointly between Angus Council, Dundee City Council, Perth and Kinross Council and NHS Tayside. The aim being to achieve similar Integration schemes across Tayside.
