    Health and Social Care Integration in Fife - Draft Strategic Plan Consultation Now Open!

    Closing date: Wednesday 06 January 2016.

    The Consultation is about us. So let’s own it.

    What is it?
    NHS Fife and Fife Council are working together in a new Integrated Health and Social Care Partnership which will be responsible for a wide range of public services here in Fife.
    The draft strategic plan sets out their vision for Health and Social Care (H&SC) in Fife along with an explanation as to why the way H&SC services are currently delivered needs to change.

    Why get involved?
    This is a significant opportunity to seek to influence major changes in around £560m (each year) of public services.
    The strategic plan will guide service delivery over the next three years in Fife. “The right action taken today will reap rewards for people now and for generations to come.” Councillor Andrew Rodger, chairperson of the Joint Integration Board.

    How to get involved?
    We have a stronger voice when we speak together.
    FVA will support this consultation process through:
