Falkirk Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) have identified a need to look at flow across the whole health and social care system. To do this, they would like to better understand what services are in place and how they work together to support people. This includes services that are provided by health, social care, third and independent sector partners, within a hospital setting as well as in local communities.
Gaining an understanding of how services work together will allow the HSCP to start to understand the source of issues that present challenges to the delivery and quality of services, and to identify solutions.
They would like to speak to adults of all ages, from a range of communities, who have experience of using different services within health and social care, or carers (including young carers) or family members of someone who has received care or support. This might include a stay in hospital, receiving on-going treatment for a long-term condition, support at home through a care-at-home service, or support from a local third sector organisation or group.
The information gathered will help inform a whole system mapping process, by adding to insights that have been offered by staff working in these services.
Falkirk HSCP have also produced an information leaflet with further information on this project.
The deadline for responses is Tuesday 18th April.
