Localities Guidance

Friday, July 3, 2015

ISBN: 9781785442902

This guidance sets out what localities are for, the principles upon which they should be established, and the ethos under which they should operate. It describes what it should be like for different people and professions to take part in locality arrangements, and it covers some of the practicalities that Integration Authorities should take into account when establishing and supporting localities.

Executive Summary

Localities can play a very powerful role in making integration a success across Scotland. By using this guidance to build upon the insights, experience and resources in localities, Health and Social Care Partnerships can improve local networks, develop

robust, productive professional relationships, and improve outcomes.
