COSLA comment on IJBs
Councillor Stuart Currie, COSLA’s Health and Social Care Spokesperson said:
"Health and Social Care Partnerships are facing significant pressures as demand is increasing and needs are becoming more complex.
"COSLA highlighted this as part of the spending review through our ‘Essential Services’ campaign.
"Investment and reform is required to ensure we have truly integrated services that deliver better outcomes for people and shift the balance of care.
"The Audit Scotland report on integration last year recognised that progress is being made under integration and the recent COSLA and Scottish Government Review of Progress outlines how further improvements can be made."
