Healthcare Improvement Scotland’s ihub is facilitating the session to explore how community led approaches can contribute to delivering health and social care priorities in Scotland.
The session will provide an opportunity to hear from the Scottish Government Adult Social Care Reform programme and an update on the development of their communities work stream.
