Health and Social Care Integration – A conversation with you

We asked:

From April to June 2015, we asked if you have had an experience of health and/or social care services that you thought we should know about, where things need to be done better and whether you agreed with the local objectives.

You said:

You said the plan needs to be clear about what is being done to achieve each objective.

Your top three priorities:

  • improved support for carers
  • access to services 24/7 across the area
  • early intervention

We did:

For each objective we set out what we intend to do to meet that objective and the changes that you can expect to see.

We added another local objective:

‘We want to improve support for carers to keep them healthy and able to continue in their caring role.’

We set up a group to oversee the development of planning for services in each of the five localities in the Borders:

  • Berwickshire
  • Cheviot
  • Eildon
  • Teviot and Liddesdale
  • Tweeddale
