Give Glasgow City Council and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde your views on the future of health and social care services in Glasgow

Glasgow City Integration Joint Board’s / Health and Social Care Partnership’s current Strategic Plan for health and social care service in Glasgow is due to end in Spring 2019, and a draft of the Strategic Plan for 2019 – 2022 is now available for consultation.

As the population of Glasgow changes, the health and social care needs of the City also change. This means that we cannot keep delivering services in the same way. We need to make sure that our priorities and actions meet the health and social care needs of Glasgow’s people, not just for now but for the next three years. We are therefore keen to get feedback on the draft Strategic Plan from service users, patients, carers, community groups and organisations, the public and any organisations we work with. Following the consultation, we will listen to what people tell us and then produce our final Strategic Plan for 2019-22. We will let you know when this is ready.

Right now though, we would really like to hear your views on our draft Strategic Plan.
