VHS is holding another round table to facilitate engagement between Audit Scotland and members of the Third Sector Health and Social Care Collaborative. Hosted at the Audit Scotland offices in Edinburgh, this timely meeting takes place not long before the formal publication of Audit Scotland’s second report on Health and Social Care Integration.
The aim of the round table is to enable Audit Scotland to build on the engagement and discussion begun at the first round table (held 23rd May) and to give Collaborative members an opportunity to get an early insight into emerging themes and messages from this latest audit.
The integration of health and social care services is a major programme of reform, affecting most health and care services and over £8 billion of public money. The reforms are far reaching, and aim to ensure services are well integrated and that people receive the care they need at the right time and in the right place. Given the scale of the reforms envisaged, Audit Scotland is carrying out three performance audits so that they can fully understand, and are able to assess, progress with health and social care integration. Read more about the scope of the second audit.
