National care service considered for Scotland as social care users are asked for insights

A review of adult social care will consider the idea of a national care service in Scotland.

It will be chaired by Derek Feeley, former NHS Scotland chief executive and is expected to report by January 2021.

Health Secretary, Jeane Freeman explains: “This independent review will examine how adult social care can be most effectively reformed to deliver a national approach to care and support services – and this will include consideration of a national care service.

“It will also build upon our existing commitments to improving provision – long standing issues in adult social care have been thrown into sharp relief during the pandemic, and they demand our attention.”

The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland are capturing insights from organisations and people who access social care to inform the Government independent review on the sector’s future.

This will occur through a series of digital engagements with organisations that represent the people using social care and comments from individuals, families and carers.

There will also be a facilitation pack so that groups can organise their own engagement sessions.

Ian Welsh OBE, ALLIANCE chief executive professor who sits on the review group, said: “The ALLIANCE’s vision is that people have a strong voice, enjoy their right to live well, and are at the centre of decision making.”
