Scottish Parliament to review the future of social care

A Scottish Parliament committee is undertaking an inquiry into the future of social care in Scotland.

Scotland’s Health and Sport Committee is seeking input from those who have received or provide social care in Scotland, as well as organisations who deliver social care. They are keen to hear about people’s experiences of social care, what an ideal model of care looks like and how to ensure the service is centred upon each individual’s needs.

They also want to explore how social care could be setup so that there is equitable access and quality of services across Scotland.

The Committee is also seeking responses from organisations on the following four questions:       

  • How should the public be involved in planning their own and their community’s social care services?
  • How should Integration Authorities commission and procure social care to ensure it is person-centred?
  • Looking ahead what are the essential elements in an ideal model of social care (e.g. workforce, technology, housing etc.)?
  • What needs to happen to ensure the equitable provision of social care across the country?   

Views can be submitted online until Thursday 20 February 2020.
