HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE INTEGRATION

Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014

The shape of Scottish society is changing. People are living longer, healthier lives and as the needs of our society change, so too must the nature and form of our public services. New legislation in the form of the Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014 requires Health Boards and local authorities to integrate their health and social care services.

Local teams and professionals across health and social care will work together to deliver quality, sustainable care and services resulting in improved outcomes for the people and families who use these services.
