Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership Communications Team want to hear your views on what has been communicated so far about Health and Social Care Integration within Glasgow City, and how you would like them to communicate with you in the future.
What is the survey about?
Glasgow City Council and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde are developing plans for the integration of community health and social care services within Glasgow City. Integration is a change in the way that community health and social care services will be planned and delivered across Scotland, which has to happen, by law.
There is a strong commitment to making integration work for Glasgow and to make it work for everyone, the Partnership needs to communicate with stakeholders to keep them up to date on progress and inform them of the work that is being done. Their stakeholders are the people and organisations who the Council and Health Board work with, and for, in the planning and delivery of community health and social care services. This includes staff, Council Elected Members, Health Board Members, service user/ patients and carer representatives, community planning partners and the third and independent sectors, among others.
How you can take part
The team are inviting you to complete the following web-based survey and to share the survey with other relevant stakeholders who may be interested in taking part. All survey responses are confidential and will be presented in a way to maintain anonymity. The survey should take around 10-15 minutes to complete, and it will be available to complete until Friday, 16 October 2015. You can access the survey by here.
If you have any questions or need a paper copy of the survey for yourself or others to complete, please email the Communications Team.
