Perth and Kinross Health and Social Care Partnership

In April 2016 parts of NHS Tayside and Perth & Kinross Council joined together to deliver Health and Social Care to the people in Perth & Kinross Council areas by forming the Perth & Kinross Health and Social Care Partnership. The Partnership is responsible for the planning, funding and delivery of a range of community health services and social work/social care services in Perth & Kinross.

The Partnership is governed by an Integration Joint Board comprising eight voting members appointed by Perth & Kinross Council and the NHS Tayside Board. Representatives from other Sectors including the 3rd Sector, Independent Sector, staff representatives and others representing the interests of patients, service users, carers and professionals advisors also sit on the Board and contribute to its work. Separate Integration Joint Boards have also been established in Dundee and Angus Council areas.

What we do?

Integrated Health and Social Care Services help to keep individuals and the communities they live in healthy and well for as long as possible.

Staff from NHS Tayside and Perth & Kinross Council work with others to improve health and well-being and reduce inequalities, to support people through periods of personal and family crisis, and to provide the joined up and seamless support people need to live safely and independently in their own homes (or a homely setting) for as long as possible.

We work very closely with our partners in the Voluntary Sector, people in local Communities and other providers of care in Perth & Kinross Council area. Along with all of our partners we are committed to ensuring that everyone will have access to the information and support that they need to live a fulfilled life.
