Views sought on future of care delivery in Moray
MORAY residents can have a say on the future delivery of health and social care across Moray,
A draft strategic plan, called Moray Partners in Care, has been launched and feedback can be given until October 11.
Behind the document is the Moray Integrated Joint Board (MIJB), which is the public body that directs the shape of services delivered across Health & Social Care Moray (HSCM).
The draft blueprint runs from 2019-2029 and sets out plans for the next decade of delivering health and social care in Moray.
Supporting people to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing is one of three key themes identified, as is enabling people to live in a homely setting.
Ensuring people have choice and responsibility for their own care requirements is the final main strand.
HSCM chief officer Pan Dudek said: "A significant amount of work has been put into the document that has included a series of workshops over the last year.
"We are really keen to hear of any additional thoughts or observations our service users and the general public feel important to consider prior to finalising this document.
"Moray Partners in Care reflects the broad partnership principles of mutuality, working together to provide positive outcomes for and with the people of Moray. Partners include Moray Council and NHS Grampian teams, as well as those from both the third and independent sectors, carers, people who use our services and communities. We are all partners in the delivery of health and social care services in Moray and together are more likely to be successful.
"I would encourage everyone to make their views known."
The papers can be viewed online at http://hscmoray.co.uk/strategic-plan-consultation.html and feedback will be pulled together for presentation to the board at the end of October.
