Working together to improve health and social care
Health & Social Care Moray is committed to putting citizens at the heart of everything we do. We work to involve people in deciding priorities and then in the development, design and delivery of all services.
A strong partnership with people who use services, their carers and their communities enables us to understand and respond to local need - improving the quality of services, people’s experience of them and their health and wellbeing outcomes.
Working with us as Moray Partners in Care takes many forms and we seek to offer a range of methods by which people can share their experiences, views and ideas to help shape what we do and how we do it in the future.
This includes engagement:
- To identify and assess what people want and need from health and care
- To decide priorities and develop plans and strategies
- To design pathways and service specifications
- In commissioning services
- To provide feedback on existing services
We support stakeholder involvement in governance, including formal assurance processes and performance management, through a number of formal structures.
Moray Integration Joint Board – The Board provides governance and oversight of all delegated health and social care services. It has one service user and one unpaid care representative.
Strategic Planning and Commissioning Group – Oversees the development and delivery of the Strategic Plan, monitoring progress on behalf of the Board. Stakeholder representatives are to be confirmed.
Transformation Boards – The following key programmes of work have been identified – health and wellbeing, mental health, care of the elderly, learning disability, primary care and Dr Gray’s Hospital. Each will have a programme board reporting to the Strategic Planning and Commissioning Group. Stakeholder representatives are to be confirmed.
Locality Planning Groups – Local representatives – including health and social care professionals, third and independent sectors, housing, service users and carers – will collaborate in four agreed localities to influence and inform service planning as we move towards achieving the objectives set out in the Strategic Plan. Locality planning groups will have a real influence on how resources are spent or redirected in their areas and will make recommendations to the Board’s Strategic Planning and Commissioning Group.
Project Board and Working Groups – Stakeholders are members of project boards and working groups to ensure the perspective of people who use services, their families and communities is listened to, taken account of and responded to.
