Welcome to the third West Dunbartonshire Health and Social Care Strategic Plan 2019 – 2022. This Strategic Plan builds on the second Plan, approved by the Health and Social Care Partnership Board on 17 August 2016 for the period 2016 – 2019; this new Plan outlines our vision for the delivery of integrated health and social care services.
Welcome to the 2018 annual review of the HSCP Strategic Plan 2016 - 2019. This annual review provides an update on progress of the agreed priorities and actions as well as providing the direction of travel for 2019 onwards for the new Strategic Plan.
This high-level strategic plan sets out our commissioning priorities for the next three years – with a clear commitment to the delivery of effective clinical and care governance and Best Value.
The delivery of this Strategic Plan represents a commitment on the part of all involved to establishing the new WD HSCP in an orderly fashion that emphasises continuity – and minimisespotential disruption or uncertainty – for service users and staff; and that prioritises continuous quality improvement of services for the benefit of the local communities of West Dunbartonshire.
this Participation and Engagement Strategy then sets out the key principles and high level ways-of-working that the Health & Social Care Partnership will apply in its relationships with stakeholders as an integral element of its mainstream planning and operational service delivery activities.
As required by legislation, the Partnership Board is responsible for strategic planning for unscheduled care with respect to the population of West Dunbartonshire. In doing this, it is obliged to work closely with the Health Board as well the other Integration Joint Boards within the Greater Glasgow & Clyde area. Unscheduled care is the unplanned treatment or care of an individual usually as a result of an emergency or urgent event. This usually takes the form of presentation at Accident and Emergency services which can result in an admission to hospital.
