Highland Health and Social Care District Partnerships

Background

As the Framework for Strategic Governance around the integrated services for Children and Adults has been evolving, the Partnership of the Council and Health Board has recognised the unique responsibility held by elected Councillors.

As well as ensuring the efficient and effective management of services for which they are accountable, they are also general advocates on behalf of their constituents in relation to a wide range of issues impacting on their communities.

The Partnership of the Council and Health Board has recognised this role by establishing a series of 9 District Partnerships within Highland (as listed below). These are action focussed and provide a clear two-way link between strategic direction and local solutions.

They involve Councillors, relevant managers, community representatives and representatives of professional groups (Social Work, Nursing, GPs and so on).

Each District partnership straddles a number of Council Wards. Listed below are the Wards contained within each district. Also indicated are the predominant wards, through landmass or population, within each partnership.

Role and Remit of District Partnerships

The District Partnerships consider issues relevant to the defined geographic and service delivery area covering both Integrated Children’s Services and Adult Services and will be a key element of local engagement. Their role and remit is to:

1. consider issues raised in relation to local service delivery and ensure that these are addressed either by local management or referred to the relevant Chief Executives of the NHS Highland or Highland Council;

2. identify key local issues and priorities in relation to the delivery of strategy and policy in services for children and adults;

3. consider and comment on performance management and monitoring reports on children and adult services outcomes in the local area;

4. consider the development and implementation of initiatives approved by the strategic governance structure;

5. propose new developments and initiatives for the consideration of the strategic governance structure; and

6. provide views on the redesign of local services, as appropriate
