IJB Directions

The Public Bodies (Joint Working)(Scotland) Act 2014 sets out the process by which an Integration Joint Board delivers its Strategic Plan by issuing ‘Directions’ to the Local Authority and the Health Board as appropriate. East Lothian IJB policy states that Directions will be issued for each delegated function including the allocation of the associated financial resource.
