The Scottish Borders Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) is holding a ‘Feedback from our Communities’ consultation.

The aim is to give all residents the opportunity to have their say and inform development of the Partnership's Strategic Plan 2023-2026. 

National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi) and the HSCP are working together to capture the views and ideas of people living in the Borders about the future delivery of health and social care.

We are asking all residents to complete a short survey, the responses from which will be used to produce a ‘Feedback from our Communities Report’. 

A series of community conversation drop in sessions and online workshops are also being held where people will be able to ask questions and provide additional feedback.

Chris Myers, Chief Officer of Scottish Borders Health and Social Care Partnership

“The continuing effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the increased cost of living and providing services is impacting everyone in the Borders. As we look to create a resilient plan for the future delivery of our Health and Social Care service, we want to hear your views.   

“We are urging all Borders residents to complete this survey and take part in upcoming Community Conversations. Now is your chance to give us your feedback and to have your say on what is important to you in the future of our services. Have your say and share this information with loved ones living in the Borders.”
