Building Resilience

The Scottish Government understands that social care providers are already working on their contingency plans and resilience development steps to prepare for a possible EU Exit on October 31st 2019. After consulting with the sector in July 2019, providers reported that minimising disruptions or shortages in the delivery of clinical consumables was essential to business as usual and the delivery of human right based care. The following self assurance survey has been designed to help the Scottish Government better understand providers preparedness in September 2019, one month before the suggested EU Exit date.
