A ‘Call for Views’ was launched by the Health, Social Care and Sport Committee to inform their consideration of the Bill to establish a National Care Service in Scotland.
In August 2022, a new consultation asked for views on the proposed National Care Service Bill (more details here). The Bill would establish a national service for social care, ending local authorities responsibility for such services. The scope of arrangements could be extended to include healthcare functions, which are currently the responsibility of the NHS. Elements of the Bill also have implications for IJBs.
ELHSCP’s IJB responded to the NCS Bill. You can view the response here.
