  • Help shape the new National Care Service

    Created: 22/09/2022

    Adults with first-hand experience of social care services in Scotland are being invited to help design the new National Care Service (NCS).

    The Scottish Government has opened up applications for both the Lived Experience Experts Panel (LEEP) and Stakeholder Register, which will help co-design the new National Care Service. 

    Anyone over the age of 18 living in Scotland who has views on how the future NCS should look can apply to take part in the Lived Experience Experts Panel. Over the next few years the design work will consider a number of themes, the first of which are:

    • Information sharing to improve health and social care support
    • Realising rights and recognising responsibilities
    • Keeping health and social care support local
    • Making sure my voice is heard
    • Valuing the workforce

    Organisations in Scotland with an interest in health and social care can note their interest in specific themes by joining the Stakeholder Register.

    In the future, there will be additional targeted ways for people get involved – for example children and young people under 18, care experienced people, and young carers.
