Given that across Ayrshire the independent sector provides care for over 2500 people, it is vital that you are engaged, equipped in shaping the transformational changes that are required to sustain person centred care for older adults with complex needs.

The New Models of Care programme consists of a number of workstreams, one of which is Older People with Complex Needs and David Rowland, Head of Service from the North Partnership is leading on. He will explain where we in this process and what the direction of travel is likely to be.

Jackie McLeod, Programme Improvement Officer, East Ayrshire HSCP will demonstrate advantages and limitations of the Simulation Model that underpins the development of the New Models of Care.

The landscape of health and social care is changing and with the formation of health & social care partnerships are being tasked to plan and deliver services 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 and homecare 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 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 already have 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. There is a need for the Independent Sector to be informed about:

  • policy and practice developments taking place in the social care sector
  • To share learning and experiences of change and innovative practice with other care home providers
  • To consider what sort of care the independent sector might want to deliver in the future
  • To identify the conditions needed for development to take place
  • To be at the forefront of shaping independent sector care provision for the future

Invitations to attend will be issued, however if you’d like more information, please contact Heather Molloy, Local Integration Lead, [email protected]
