Integration of Adult Health and Social Care in Scotland: Consultation A Shared Statement from Third Sector Organisations

The third sector welcomes the intention to improve outcomes through better integration of health and social care. The sector – both as a conduit for the voices of people who use services, and as a major provider of support and services – has long campaigned for integrated, effective support that enables people to access their right to independent living. This means people having the same freedom, choice, dignity and control as other citizens, being able to participate in society and live an ordinary life.
