The Strategic Commissioning Plan, which is at the heart of integration and sets out how health and social care services will be delivered in a more integrated way to improve the quality of support for people who need them. Crucially, the plan sets out how services will be delivered in local areas against priorities identified.
Central to the direction of travel for the Health and Social Care Partnership is a Strategic Commissioning Plan (SCP). The SCP itself is statutory, with a three year planning cycle mandated by the Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act. In a South Lanarkshire context, the SCP was approved in March 2016, covering the planning period 2016-19. As the SCP is now almost two years into its three year term, progress has been reviewed and sense checked against the existing priorities. The SCP Refresh provides a renewed focus for the HSCP to achieve its priorities over the remaining term of the plan and to build upon the successes achieved to date.
South Lanarkshire Health and Social Care Integration Scheme
The Integration Scheme is important as it sets out crucial aspects of how integration will look in South Lanarkshire in the future including:
- The functions of health and social care which are to be delegated to the new H&SCP
- How the delegated functions will be delivered and monitored
- Development of financial management and governance arrangements.
