An opportunity to actively engage with Audit Scotland, following publication of their first audit on health and social care integration.
Audit Scotland gives independent assurance to the people of Scotland that public money is spent properly, efficiently and effectively. Their report on Health and Social Care Integration was published 3rd December 2015. It says that significant risks must be addressed if the reform of health and social care is to fundamentally change how services are delivered and improve outcomes for the people who use them.
Audit Scotland is keen to strengthen its engagement with the third sector as an important stakeholder in health and social care, and VHS is coordinating this workshop on behalf of the Third Sector Health and Social Care Advisory Group. This builds on the discussion VHS organised with Audit Scotland during the audit process itself.
The workshop will enable Audit Scotland to present the report to voluntary, community, social enterprise or housing organisations involved in the integration agenda. It will provide an opportunity to share third sector views with Audit Scotland, discuss the implications of the report and explore how we can build on the recommendations.
VHS have prepared a short briefing paper on the Audit Scotland report- Briefing Paper – Audit Scotland Health and Social Care Integration and the Third Sector
