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.
