The Health and Social Care Forum met on Thursday 04 December 2014. 18 people attended the last Forum of the year to hear the latest updates on Integration and discuss the Self-Directed Support (SDS) Fund.
Members of the Forum heard that seven Localities have been agreed for Fife following the Fife Localities Consultation. Other updates at the Forum included an update on the progress of the Integration Care Fund, Fife’s Joint Strategic Plan, and the future of the Partnership Management Group (PMG) and Shadow Board. It was also noted that the consultation on the Integrated Scheme would be launched on Wednesday 10 December.
The group also discussed a potential partnership bid for the SDS Fund. There was a high level of interest from members to put together a partnership proposal for the deadline on Thursday 09 January 2015. FVA are facilitating workshops to develop this proposal.
