Scottish Parliament Inquiry into Social Care

The Scottish Parliament’s Health and Sport Committee are currently undertaking an inquiry into social care in Scotland.

The call for views – closing on Thursday February 20 – will be followed by a series of evidence sessions beginning in April.

They are seeking views from people with lived experience of receiving adult social care or being a carer for someone receiving care and would like to hear:

1. Your story and experience of social care in Scotland

2. What you would change about your experience of social care?

They are keen to receive responses to the following questions:

1. How should the public be involved in planning their own and their community’s social care services?

2. How should Integration Joint Boards commission and procure social care to ensure it is person-centred?

3. Looking ahead, what are the essential elements in an ideal model of social care (e.g. workforce, technology, housing etc.)?

4. What needs to happen to ensure the equitable provision of social care across the country?
