Call To Shape The Future Of Health & Social Care & Support In Region 

A 12 week consultation period on the Integration Joint Board (IJB) First Draft Strategic Commissioning Plan (SCP) 2022 – 2025 has started this week. This follows on from previous engagement across Dumfries and Galloway from late 2019 to January 2021.

The IJB are inviting people to keep the conversation going and, by doing this, continue to shape the future of care and support in Dumfries and Galloway with them.

Julie White is Chief Officer of the Dumfries and Galloway Health and Social Care Partnership.

She said: “We are engaging with, and encouraging, as many local people as possible to work with us to shape the future of care and support in the region.

“By actively listening and responding to the thoughts, views and lived experiences of people who access or deliver health and social care and support, we aim to ensure that the SCP reflects what is important to them.”

Opportunities to engage and work together with us to develop the SCP are available from now until mid August 2021.

Julie White said: “COVID has made engaging a challenge but work to develop the SCP has continued in spite of this.

“I would urge everyone to ensure that their voice is heard and take an active role in shaping the future of health and social care and support. By working together we can ensure that the SCP is the best it can be for everyone in Dumfries and Galloway. Thank you.”
