  • National Care Service Consultation - Invitation to Fife H&SCP Engagement Workshops

    Created: 15/09/2021, Updated: 28/09/2021

    consultation has been launched by the Scottish Government to seek public views ahead of the creation of a National Care Service

    The news follows an independent review of adult social care led by Derek Feeley, which recommended that the service should be established on an equal footing with NHS Scotland.

    The consultation runs until 02 November 2021.

    Fife Health and Social Care Partnership is seeking the views of as many individuals, groups, and organisations in Fife as possible to ensure everyone has the opportunity to have their say.  This includes seeking the views of a wide range of people who are currently supported by social care, be it support with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, mental health conditions, older people, people recovering for substance addictions, homeless people, children and families, or children who are unable to live with their families.  The Partnership wants to hear the views of these people, their families, their carers, and people who work in the Health and Social Care sector, those who have used the care system in the past, but no longer need to use it, and those who may need to use social care services in the future (and that means everyone!).

    Anyone can complete an individual consultation response, however, the Partnership is also looking to capture views from the groups it works with to provide a collective response for Fife. It is running a series of engagement workshops focusing on the seven themes of the NCS Consultation.
