Inverness New Models of Care Workshop

12th December 2016 @ 1:30 am - 4:30 pm


Inverness New Models of Care Workshop

Spectrum Centre 12th December 1.30pm – 4.30pm


Scottish Care will therefore be hosting a New Models of Care workshop for care home providers in the Highlands on Monday 12th December 1.30pm-4.30 pm, at the Spectrum Centre in Inverness.  This interactive event will be facilitated by Dr Donald Macaskill, Scottish Care’s CEO.


The landscape of health and social care in Scotland is changing:

  • The formation of health & social care partnerships is changing the way services are planned and delivered locally.  Locality planning requires an in-depth understanding of both the local market and local needs, and a range of options must be available to individuals to support their health and social care journey.
  • Processes are underway to reform care home and care at home services, particularly in relation to their commissioning and procurement.  This requires consideration to be given to what we want care home services to deliver in the future.
  • Self-directed support means care packages will be assessed, purchased and delivered in a much more personalised way, meaning care home services may have to configure their provision differently.
  • The National Care Standards are changing to reflect a human rights-based approach to assessing someone’s experiences and outcomes of care and support.


All of these changes mean services are considering how they can develop and innovate for the future.  Some have already got learning and good practice to share, others have ideas about how they would like to develop their provision, whilst others are unclear how to ensure their services are fit for the future or are experiencing barriers to innovation.


At whatever stage of their innovation journey, it is essential that providers’ knowledge, experience and ideas are central to shaping local planning.
