Scottish Care will be holding a number of events over the next few weeks to consult and directly engage with members on the topic of the National Care Service.
From these events, we hope to gather insights and views from Scottish Care members to allow us to officially respond to the National Care Service Consultation held by the Scottish Government. More details on these consultation events can be found below.
Care Home Members – Tuesday 14th September, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm (instead of our usual care home surgery)
Care at Home Members – Wednesday 22nd September, 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Details to join these events will be available on the Members Area.
The pandemic has shone a spotlight on the importance of social care services. Last year, the Scottish Government commissioned an independent review of adult social care to identify ways of consistently delivering high-quality services for everyone who needs them.
The review recommended the creation of a new National Care Service, with Scottish Ministers being accountable for adult social care support. The Scottish Government now have a consultation to seek views on the creation of a community health and social care service that supports people of all ages, whatever their needs may be.
