Health and Sport Committee social care inquiry
Health and Support Committee issues call for evidence on social care.
The Scottish Parliament’s Health and Sport Committee is carrying out an inquiry into social care in Scotland.
The Scottish Government Adult Social Care Reform Programme is currently working to reform social care in Scotland. This inquiry will not replicate that work.
The committee wants to explore the future delivery of social care in Scotland as well as what is required to meet future need:
- Experiences of social care in Scotland
The committee is seeking views from people with lived experience of receiving adult social care or being a carer for someone receiving care. It would like to hear:
- people’s stories and experience of social care in Scotland
- what people would change about their experience of social care
- The future delivery of social care in Scotland
The committee is keen to receive responses to the following questions:
- How should the public be involved in planning their own, and their community’s, social care services?
- How should integration joint boards commission and procure social care to ensure it is person-centred?
- Looking ahead, what are the essential elements in an ideal model of social care (e.g. workforce, technology, housing etc.)?
- What needs to happen to ensure the equitable provision of social care across the country?
