Health and Social Care Integration

The Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014 requires Health Boards and Local Authorities to work in a more integrated way when delivering health and social care services.

Under the Act we will delegate some functions to a new Joint Integration Body, and regulations set out which health and social care functions and services must be integrated.

NHS Shetland and Shetland Islands Council are currently inviting consultation responses on a draft Integration Scheme and a draft Strategic (Commissioning) Plan. To see these and provide comments please visit the joint Health and Social Care Integration website.
