Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP)

The Argyll and Bute Health and Social Care Partnership came into being in April 2016 and the Strategic Plan for 2016-19 has set out local priorities in response to national policies and importantly takes account of what  local communities have said is important to them; reducing the need for emergency/urgent care, preventing ill health and maintaining health and wellbeing.

Over the next two years they need to save £22 million out of our annual budget of £257 million. This is due to cost and inflation pressures and the level of funding provided by NHS Highland and Argyll and Bute Council. Click on the link to a leaflet giving you more information.
