COSLA comment on Scottish Government Financial Framework

COSLA's Spokesperson for Health and Social Care, Councillor Stuart Currie, said:

"We welcome the publication of the medium term Financial Framework which brings together the financial context for the Health and Social Care system in one place. 

"It is clear Local Government has a vital role to play in securing better health and social care outcomes for our communities. This work is a good first step but highlights that more needs to be done to understand and respond to the financial challenges facing the health and social care system. 

"The assumptions made in the report will require strong management moving forward. This emphasises the dual importance of investment and reform to ensure we have truly integrated services that deliver better outcomes for people and shift care from hospital settings to the community."
