From Alison Macdonald. East Lothian IJB Chief Officer
I wanted to share this communication from Scottish Government with you. I hope you will take the opportunity to share your views on this. Thank you. Alison.
Today the Scottish Government has launched a consultation to ensure that there are no unintended or unexpected consequences to Integration Joint Boards becoming Category 1 responders under Schedule 2 of the Civil Contingencies Act 2004. It is for this reason that I now write. As a valued partner I would like to encourage you to consider sharing your views by responding to the consultation by the closing date of 2 November. I would also ask that you share the consultation more widely within your networks or to those who would have an interest. The consultation can be accessed from the attached link:
I would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to consider the consultation and for sharing your views. Should you have any issues accessing the consultation or would like to receive this in a different format please get in contact.
